Damp Surveys – problem damp in lower ground floor flat
An independent surveyor missed the obvious signs of condensation. Sad, because you expect contractors to misdiagnose damp, after all “they are incentivised to sell”. A cold November day, 4 people living in a two bedroom lower ground floor flat, no extractor fan in kitchen nor bathroom and there had been a recent leak.
Cause – condensation
Sadly the independent surveyor incorrectly diagnosed the chimney and parapets, despite the property being five stories high.
