  • Leasehold Property

    Penetrating Damp legal requirement

    It is a first floor dwelling in a block of 12 in a converted  Victorian building,random stone rubble infill.

    Freeholder accepts there is some penetrating damp.  A surveyor has advised tanking the wall. 

    However, there are objections and it is said this would be an improvement, not repair and maintain.

    Any comments valued.

    Surely failing to follow professional advice is going to negate the insurance. I think the freeholder has no obligation but to do this as he cannot commercially or legally afford for the insurance to lapse.

    I would also you get clarity from the surveyor that this is maintenance. And of course call the insurer who will decide the action.
