Hi

Could you provide advice on the responsibility of the lessor to undertake work to remedy rising damp? The lessor has accepted responsibility for damp works but is refusing to undertake the work until all the lessees have paid their share of the costs. I'm aware that at least one lessee is habitually in arrears which means that the work could be delayed indefinitely. My understanding is that Damp falls under essential repair as a Statutory Nuisance as classified under section 82 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and therefore remedying must not be delayed irrespective of whether payment is received. Is this correct and what course of redress do I have?

Thank you.
