I’m new to being a landlord and have had tenants in my flat for the first time since end of September. It’s been fairly problematic since with drain blockages, my boiler needs replacing, all of that is manageable however my flat has been prone to rising damp.
I had professional damp proofing done 3 years ago in the bedroom which fixed the rising damp issues however, I have been in to the property this morning and the tenants have shown 3 sections of black mould which has appeared since they have moved in.
I never had this issue when I lived there. The black mould is clear to see on the white painted walls and all in the bottom corners of any external walls in the bathroom, bedroom and living room. I have provided a dehumidifier, the double glazing is new and they have trickle vents, but don’t understand why black mould is forming.
There is a smell of damp in the flat now. I am aware that washing is being dried inside over chairs and the radiators, the radiators in the living room and bathroom were turned off (they are trying to manage costs) so I don’t know if this is adding to the issues.
Any advice and help would be appreciated and an understanding of whether I am now accountable to fix an issue which I feel the tenants have created.
