Firstly apologies, i don’t mean to offend anyone but i am clueless about this situation (bad experience on another forum where is asked this question and got a rollicking for not knowing).
I moved into a rented property 8 days ago, there had been a gutter leak which had been repaired and some pointing replaced to teh front wall outside the main bedroom. I noted a large spongy patch on the wall in the main bedroom where the pointing had been replaced and ensured this was on the inventory and also the damp stains coming through the painting in the second bedroom next to teh chimney breast. There is no loft access available.
There is now damp staining coming through in the main bedroom and mould gathering under the window, and I’ve only been in 8 days. I ensure the propertry is aired, I have had property before and am aware of the need to air them to release moisture.
I am expecting a baby in 3 weeks time and i’m worried about this damp and mould.
My question is what can i do about it? What do i do about it? Do i mention it to the letting agency?
I have never rented before and before you ask it was all i could afford at short notice. I have a six month contract.
