I was recently advised by my property managing agents, that there is a problem with damp in one of the bedrooms of the leasehold property which I let out.
A specialist examination has revealed that this is due to condensation caused by the construction style of the property ‘with solid walls and very little ventilation’. The specialist has also stated that ‘The damp course along the front and side of the property is bridged by high ground levels’ and that ‘This could be contributing to the effects of condensation.’
They recommend that the condensation is first controlled and then the inadequate bridging addressed. The specialist’s quote to rectify the above issue is for a not inconsiderable amount.
Does anybody know whether I would be within my rights to ask my lessor(s) (there are 2 of them) for financial assistance in this connection? I have examined both leases which are written in a rather old style and are as a result quite difficult to understand for a layman such as myself, but I am quite sure that there are no clearly designated responsibilities for the Lessor in either with respect to any necessary repairs to the property.
Any advice appreciated.
