    Central Register for Accredited Energy Assessors?

    Can anyone please point me to a central register to find energy assessors in my area. I did stumble on one website but none of the people I am sure are qualified as assessors are listed.

    Many Thanks

    1. Public advice is believed accurate, but I accept no legal responsibility except to direct-paying private clients.
    2. Telephone advice: see http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=34638.
    3. For paid advice about conveyancing/leaseholds/L&T, contact me* and become a private client.

      Thanks jeffrey - Neither of these sites appear to help so I will give my local Trading Standards a call in the morning. Two ways I may want to use the register 1) type in a postcode and get all the registered energy assessors in my area or 2) I am approached by somebody who claims to be an energy assessor so I check the register to see if they are listed.

          Hi everyone,

          I’d like a bit of advice about damp. The house is an old (1800’s) end terraced house.

          My tenant told me this time last year that she was experiencing mould patches on the walls upstairs. I had a look and thought it to be caused by poor ventilation etc and...

          Unfortunately, some tenants do not understand how condensation is formed and how they are creating it. They see wet walls and automatically assume it is water coming in from outside. Obviously, in some cases it is a failing in the building structure or a simple fix like a blocked or faulty gutter....

          Those photos don't look like a condensation problem.
          I'd expect condensation on large flat surfaces rather than in the corners.

          Because you tried that last year and its back again! Unfortunately there is no one 'expert' who can help - they only deal with their own area of specialisation. You need to look at the whole picture yourself and take a view.

          I had damp issues in many Victorian terraced houses and each case...

          Injectable DPC may last only 10 years or may have been 'bridged?
          My builder prefers to 'chase out. the morter and insert a roof tile barrier.

          If there is no such thing as rising damp, damp proof courses are a con, and the long multithread on the building without one is based on a false premise.

          A very long time ago, I was in a seaside basement flat where a spare room had serious mould problems, because it was below ground and...

          AlexR - good points, as yes it is rendered - again that was re done around 5/6 years ago but worth rechecking to see if there’s any cracks. And yes it is the chimney wall. The chimney is in the middle of the wall and the mould patches are on the 2 opposite ends. The wallpaper is the anaglypta type...

          I made a mistake in my post, mortar is also alkaline, I meant to say that the acid balance (the Ph level) is wrong for mould, but I got carried away.

          Mould needs neutral water, so if the plaster is alkaline water coming through it won't support mould. Water condensing on a surface will....

          Your instincts are correct in that it won't be the DPC - you need to look at roof,chimney flashings,gutters and the gable end wall. I owned an end terrace house with a similar problem with tenants complaining about mould growing on clothes, walls etc and black patches on the walls.
