Please help!
Late spring and summer for the past two years my property has suffered from water ingress through the wall and maybe through floor (it's tiled so unsure). It is a three storey house with the ground floor being below ground level at the back. I have tried attaching a picture but I can't!
Last winter it seemed to dry up. The water board has been out and tested everything and relined drains etc but this has not helped.
The garden at the rear or the house slopes down towards the property and there are step running down the side of the house too.
We did demolish a poorly constructed lean too at the rear of the property which had a concrete base approx 8 years ago, could this have caused problems with the patio?
Im lost as to who I should contact or what may be causing this. :dunno:
Any ideas/suggestions/thought greatfully received

sloping ground an high ground level can often be the cause of damp. you will have to ask the mods or some of the other posters how to post pics because you realy need to put up pics of the inside damp an the outside wall an ground.

It may also be that you have a high water table.

Take it easy, a forum is only a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

No such thing as "Thou shalt put this wire here, Thou shalt put that wire there" .............Take a picture BEFORE you do the job.
