Landlords: Control Damp in your Rented Homes
As a landlord, you’ll want to maximise the return on your investment. That means offering a well-maintained property for a reasonable price.
If your rented property has a damp problem then it is well worth fixing. Not only will your rented property be more cosmetically pleasing but it will be clean and healthy and command a better rental price.
Only last month a landlady in Ellesmere Port was ordered to pay over £2,000 by Chester Magistrates Court. This included £1,200 of fines, over £800 in court costs and a £120 victim surcharge. This was in addition to having to conduct the remedial work to fix the damp problem in the flat she rented to private tenants.
So, to avoid costly fines, it is essential that you maintain your property to ensure that it is in an acceptable condition and state of repair.
If you have a damp problem then it is in your best interests to get a solution in place as soon as possible.
