“Damp problem in ex-council house BT18”

Written on: 04/08/2019 by HayleyGriffin-Alt (1 review written)

Moved into a spareroom property in Belfast BT18. House had a very well presented online profile. When viewed it was very well looked after had reasonable facilities and was very tidy.

Soon after moving in I had to spend a day scrubbing a thick layer of damp off 2 of the 4 bedsit walls. I was then told that my bedsit room window had to be open 24x7 to avoid the damp problem. (something to do with what materials were used to build this ex-council house)

Because of the permanently open window and despite the thermostatically controlled heating the temp in my room varied between 17.5 to 19C chilly to cool.

Expecting anyone to pay good money for a room at 17.5C is a basic problem the landlady needs to fix regardless of how well the house looks in the profile.
