Damp And Mould Guide

Damp and mould issues are everyone’s problem. Tackling these issues as soon as possible protects tenant health, and also limits damage to the building.

Finding the cause can be difficult. There are different types of damp that can cause mould, and there can be more than one affecting your home at once.

Property Improvement Grants

The council offer several schemes to make properties warmer and more efficient. This includes insulation, solar panels, and heat pumps.
If you’re a tenant and you want to see if your home may qualify for a grant, you must make sure you have your landlord’s permission before applying to one of the schemes.
