  • Damp

    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...

    Constant running fans operate at a very low flow rate 'constantly'. Then, when it is required, it goes into a second speed and increases the extract rate. The perfect trigger for this is a Humidistat detector built into the unit. This keeps air moving within the room.

    I would go back...

    JK0 why issue a s21? It wasn’t a complaint, they just asked if anything could be done/looked at. It was a text message so I guess that would class as in writing in today’s society....

  • EPC Validity and Time Periods
    JustImpeachMe
    Hello, first time poster (be nice). Hope this topic hasn't been covered too many times before. My question is about the legalities and timeframes of EPC's. The manager of my housing association (who completed tenancy documents with me six months ago when I moved in) failed to provide me with an EPC...

    1a) Trading Standards can issue a penalty charge notice.
    1b) The EPC must be provided before a valid no fault eviction can be started.

    2) No

    3) Trading Standards.

    I'd use a s21 notice IIWY, as long as tenant has not complained in writing.

    To deal with condensation you need to think about heat and ventilation. Both the bathroom and kitchen are major generators of moisture and in the bathroom you should fit a high quality extractor fan that operates automatically when the moisture level is high, and make sure the radiator is working. In...

    You're wrong, I can see who has viewed a thread and on a per-thread basis the number of views varies very little between forums. Always post in the appropriate forum otherwise you might not get the best answers, and you waste my time....

    One small step - thank you for the advice. Just an update, I’ve been round in heavy rain to observe the outside and can’t see any issues with rendering etc. The roof has been check and is ok. This morning I’ve had a damp specialist out. It was a feee visit to diagnose the problem. They have said...
