The answer to this question depends on what type of tenant or owner you are.

Damp is water coming in from outside your home. You need to get a professional in to look at it as soon as possible.

Damp, or penetrating damp, is when water from outside your home finds its way in. Leaking roofs, leaky water pipes or building defects can all cause damp. If you have a damp issue, you're responsible for treating it yourself. 

If you have a new home, it is still under warranty and the damp is caused by a building defect, you may be able to claim for the work through your NHBC insurance policy

Signs of damp

  • Blotchy patches on your walls

  • Signs of mildew - a white fungus
  • Drips and puddles

  • Ceilings
  • Random areas on external walls, especially south-west facing walls
