Landlords who rent out properties that have mould, are at risk of being prosecuted and facing a large fine or even imprisonment. Landlords of tenanted properties are legally obliged to treat mould. If they fail to do so, the face being prosecuted under Section 11 of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1988 or Sections 79, 80 and 82 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. These acts classify mould as a statutory nuisance.
Mould is common in all types of building, particularly in Autumn and Winter. But it is easily controlled by improving ventilation and insulation and drying wet surfaces. But if mould has already begun to grow, it needs expert attention to ensure that the mould’s root system and active spores are removed.
LES mould removal experts use biocides and fungicides, which work against the mould outbreak and ensure that no rogue spores can land and germinate. Then we seal a layer of protection over the wall, so that there is no way that the spores can fix to it. The result is the property is then safe for its inhabitants and land lords are free from the fear of prosecution.
