  • It depends on how bad the damp is. Damp problems are often actually condensation caused by the tenants, there are experts I can put you in touch with who do reports for as little as £55. If the damp is major and the landlord is not putting the problem right then most agents would no longer wish to act as it would not be worth the hassle for them to continue to deal with the landlord. Their are no legal obligations on the agent that I know of but the house must be fit and proper to live in for the landlord to continue receiving rent for it. I would 1st establish what the damp problem is as it may be condensation which can be solved very easily but causes so much argument between tenant and landlord. Hope this helps
