Illness caused by damp and mould
If your rented accommodation has got damp and mould and you or a family member have become ill as a result, you may be able to make claim for damp against your Local Authority or private landlord.
Damp will typically occur in a room which is warm, moist and highly humid. If damp builds up in your house and you report it to the Council or your landlord but they fail to rectify the problem you may be able to make a claim for damp. If the damp builds up to a certain level it could become toxic.

It is well established that there are health risks associated with mould spores which have been identified as source of health problems such as respiratory problems, infections, allergies and other debilitating medical conditions. Mould produces allergens and irritants and in some cases toxins that may cause reactions in humans.
