I have a few flats in South Tyneside, some of which are known to have been built on watercourses and have a damp problem …. the phrase “I wish I’d know that when I bought it”, springs to mind.
One in particular in South Shields is giving me problems with damp, furry clothes and mould etc. I have carried out a bit of market research myself and spoke to all the down stairs flat owners, some of which have lived there for 50 years !!! They all know that there properties have water under them, and most of them suffer from damp.
I am trying to look for a resolution which could be a pump installed, Envirovent, or a damp course, all of which cost money and I don’t know if they’ll work.
Under the floor boards there is about 5 foot of space, and at least a foot of water, which I’m not sure if it rises or not …… bit of a dilemma as to what to do for the best, and I was wondering if any reader have had a similar problem. I’d really appreciate some advice or help …..
