  • Concrete flooring in a period property sounds like a recipe for trouble. Funneling moisture underneath the property through to the nearest escape point, the surrounding walls

    Would it have had a suspended timber floor previously do you think?
    Or if it was a solid floor before it would have most like been breathable.

    The plaster on the walls - lime or cement/gypsum ?
    The latter plaster might exacerbate the issue caused by the flooring

    Ventilation sounds like it's satisfactory by your account but condensation damp is always possible

  • Lime I think, it was on the other side. There were timber floors at one point for sure as there are air bricks front and back.
