Thank you for your patience.
Under the new Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act, rented houses and flats should be ‘fit for human habitation’, which means that they are safe, healthy, and free from things that could cause serious harm.
One of the problems the house should be free of is dampness and mould.
Your landlord must make sure that your home is ’fit for human habitation’, which means that it’s safe, healthy, and free from things that could cause you or anyone else in your household serious harm. If the house is mouldy and damp, it can affect the health of the occupants.
If you have already complained about the state of the house to the Landlord and he has failed to carry out their repairing or management duties to bring this to the attention of their local council.
Make a complaint to the Environmental Health department of your local council regarding the condition of your rented accommodation, as they can intervene, ask the Landlord to do the repairs at the earliest and can issue fines
