Living with Damp for over FIFTEEN years

September 24, 2020

Residents on the popular St Martin's estate in Tulles Hill were waiting over a year for their landlords to take action against damp problems.

In a recent article by, it was reported that over fifty tenants were waiting for repairs having complained multiple times about serious mould problems. The mould was causing ill-health amongst the residents and had been a problem for some for over sixteen years. The housing disrepair should have been acted on much earlier, and if it had been, it would have saved some years of emotional and physical stress.

Gary Downey, a tenant who had been suffering for over fifteen years, said, 'Every complaint feels like a battle - there is usually no response... it's the same old your windows, don't dry clothes indoors, etc.' He continued, 'I did all of this, and I still have damp. There must come a time when the landlords admit they must do something permanent to help us.'
