3. Damp

Landlords are responsible for damp caused by lack of damp proofing, inadequate heating systems, or a structural defect. If the problem is affecting your health you will need to tell your landlord.

However, if damp has been caused by the ineffective usage of heating or ventilation then it is your responsibility. For advice and support, please read our leaflet on damp, mould and condensation.
