Hi - I'd be really grateful if someone could give me some advice on this. Myself, my husband and two very small children were renting a tiny threebedroomed house in Scotland. When we first moved in every room had been freshly painted. Throughout the year it quickly became apparent that there was a horrendous damp problem and even though we alerted the landlord to this he didn't seem to do anything about it. He even tried to blame us for it saying we were causing condensation in the house by not opening windows (which we were doing)! A lot of our property was damaged and had to be thrown out as they were covered in mould. My questions is - am I entitled to ask for compensation? I've read through the (very basic) lease and it simply says he has to ensure he keeps the house wind and water tight.
