Condensation, damp and mould
Most damp, mould or mildew in the home is caused by factors such as the temperature of your home or poor ventilation. We have produced a guide, which offers advice on how to prevent condensation. You can download our leaflet: Tenants' Handbook - Condensation (PDF 621KB).
If you think that damp problems are caused by a structural defect, then you should report it as a repair.
Alterations and improvements to your home
Council tenants must ask us for permission to make alterations or improvements to your home. You can find out more on our Home improvement page.
