Rising damp

Owned property

If you think that you have rising damp then you need a building surveyor to investigate the problem. They will be able to tell you exactly what is causing the problem and how to fix it.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) lists companies with qualified building surveyors and gives some advice.

Rented property

If you rent your home then you will need to contact your landlord to get the problem fixed. Tell us about the problem if you are in a Dacorum Borough Council-owned property.

Environmental Health will only be able to help if this does not solve the problem, or your landlord refuses to fix the issue.

Warning signWe will be collecting bins from roads where it is safe to do so. Please leave your bins out for collection. If your bins have not yet been collected, leave them on the boundary of your property and we will collect them as soon as conditions allow. ×
