Business Profile

Damp survey is an thorough investigation undertaken by a professional damp surveyor to establish both the cause and effect of dampness in a building. It is also known as a damp and timber survey.

5 damp survey examples;
Homebuyers report; "you are advised to obtain a damp survey from a Property Care Association qualified damp surveyor".
Mortgage lenders; "Borrowers should have a comprehensive damp survey carried out by an independent surveyor to minimise the risk of discovering penetrating or rising damp".

Buyer; "I just bought a house and foolishly only had a basic survey. On the first day we discovered severe damp in the kitchen. By chance we found out that the previous owner had a damp survey which uncovered a problem, but she chose not to fix it. It wasn't declared during the sale. She sold the house knowing about a severe damp problem. Do I have a legal case?"

Caveat Emptor - buyer beware; "Sellers can and do hide evidence of damp in their homes, behind pictures and furniture or omit to mention that a shower leaks. You are advised to have a comprehensive damp survey".

Home owner; "I had treatment for rising damp 5 years ago and the damp has returned between the old and new plaster. The damp proofer tells me it will replace the damp proofing under guarantee, but only if I spend more money on damp proofing the wall up to ceiling height. I would like an independent damp survey before deciding whether to go ahead."
