I hope that I have found the right place to post this, I am new to this site and looking for some advice if possible please.
I rent a flat from my local council, Dacorum Borough Council. There is a real problem with mould and damp throughout the flat. This is causing me great concern, more from a health perspective than any other. My husband has lung conditions and had a double lung collapse not very long ago. After having several people come and look at the mould on behalf of the council I still have no answer to how to prevent or cure this.
More than one person has said that they think the mould could be due to overcrowding. I have two daughters in a very small room. I have been told that I should leave the window wide open (yes actually wide open) at night, even though this is a ground floor flat!
I have asked for a transfer, but the council has told me that I am not classed as overcrowded.
Please can anyone tell me what the guidelines are for deciding if I am technically overcrowded or not?
Thanks in advance
