Managing Damp & Mould in Residential Lets
Following last month’s publication of the committee of government experts’ guidance on understanding and assessing the health risks of damp and mould in housing, a collection of documents has been added to assist residential landlords and letting agents with the management of damp and mould problems in dwellings.
The content includes:
- an overview of a residential landlord’s responsibilities in respect of investigating and rectifying damp and mould problems
- template letters to assist with the management of damp and mould complaints
- a checklist of indicators to help identify whether a property is likely to have damp issues, and
- a tenant condensation checklist with actions which tenants can take to help reduce condensation levels in a property.
The committee's guidance applies to properties in England only but is suitable for best practice use in Wales.
