A tenant has complained to council about mold. Council housing officer wants me to clean it off, then paint with funficidal paint (whatever that is). I expect the tenant to clean it off if they have not ventilated the house sufficiently.
I would like to charge them something. Can I?
Yes the house has windows that open and trickle vents and a couple of air vents on chimney breasts. The tenant has never lived in an older house before with non cavity cold solid walls. Yes I have given them RLA leaflet on condensation and the housing officer says he gave them something similar. We are in month 3 of 24 month AST.
I fear that if I clean it off they will try and get me back on a regular basis. Until they ventilate the house properly the problem will keep coming back.
