Housing disrepair - Living with Damp for over FIFTEEN years

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. Meaning that they were living in a state of housing disrepair for an unprecedented amount of time.

In a recent article by www.londonnewsonline.co.uk. Reports 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, had been allowed to go on for too long. Therefore, if it was resolved earlier, it would have saved some years of emotional and physical stress.

What the tenants said.

Gary Downey, a tenant who had been suffering for over fifteen years. Has said, 'Every complaint feels like a battle - there is usually no response... it's the same old story. You need to, open 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.'
