How we tackle damp and mould matters – working with tenants to improve homes

Damp and mould in properties has significant and serious impacts on tenants. This session looks at the learning from the Housing Ombudsman’s report, and at the use of technology to help identify homes and support households most at risk from damp and mould.

It is clear that the problem with damp and mould is a significant one in the social housing sector.

It has huge impacts on the experiences of tenants and can be difficult to get right. However, it is vital that landlords work with tenants to address the problems where these arise, finding solutions quickly that make a real and lasting difference.

This session will explore the findings of the Housing Ombudsman from its extensive investigation into complaints around damp and mould and the recommendations it has for landlords

It will also provide an opportunity to explore the way that technology can be harnessed by social landlords to help them to identify risk, and how to respond appropriately.

Why attend?

  • Understand the long-term implications of damp and mould, and impacts for tenants’ health and wellbeing

  • Learn from the experiences of other landlords on how to tackle the issue

  • Explore the value of technology to help identify these most at-risk (homes and households)

  • Consider what is needed to provide a rounded solution to the problem – repairs, income maximisation etc. (people and resources).
