 Damp and Mould
in rented property




If you rent your home, major repairs are usually the responsibility of your landlord. This includes repairs to the structure and exterior of the property, heating and hot water installations, and sanitary installations. Your landlord is probably a business person renting out property as an investment for their future or retirement. They know it is in their own interests as well as yours to keep the property in good order so if you have a problem talk to the landlord, discuss the problem in a fair and reasoned manner and give them time to react to points raised.Dampness is generally a problem with the fabric of the building and will need to be adressed by your landlord, however condensation and mould problems are often a combination of lifestyle and ventillation problems, a tenant can go a long way towards keeping thes problems at bay - read our condensation section before you start complaining...the answer could be to do your lifestyle!!


Standards in your home

Rental properties should be free of health and safety hazards, landlords should ensure that problems in the home are dealt with before they lead to poor health or cause accidents.

Hazards can arise in the home because of its design, wear and tear, or a lack of maintenance. The most common hazards involve:

  • Mould growth, Dampness and other health threatening conditions 
  • Safety, internal and external handrails, steep stairs and poor lighting which may lead to slips trips or falls 
  • Poor insulation, Inadequate heating and general disrepair 
  • Problems causing inadequate personal and domestic hygiene 
  • Fire safety 

In general it is the landlords responsibility to check and ensure the property is maintained as a warm and safe environment for the people who live there. The landlord may also need to take into account the requirements of tenants with special needs.
