The Fitness for Habitation Bill has been passed and will be in effect from
20th March 2019.
It includes DAMP and we all know what a contentious issue that is! How is it created, tenant or landlord?
How will you prove it?…
We have many simple damp solutions to tell you about, including a supplier of a special solution to wipe it down, special paint that won’t allow mould to grow and positive air ventilation systems at reduced rates.
Get in touch if we can help!
