Oxford City Council says a new law for social landlords to tackle damp and mould should be extended to all rented homes.
People living in homes with damp and mould are more likely to have respiratory problems, allergies or asthma. Damp and mould can also affect the immune system and have a negative impact on people’s mental health.
Last November, a coroner found mould caused the death of two-year-old Awaab Ishak at his home in Rochdale in 2020.
In response, the government has announced new legislation known as ‘Awaab’s law’. This will make councils and housing associations fix reported health hazards – including damp and mould – in their homes within strict new time limits.
