Someone may come around to your house and offer you a free damp-proofing survey. No matter what type of condition that your house in, these people will always find damps that need proofing immediately.
You’ll probably be told that your home needs urgent attention, and the quote that you’ll get will always be outrageous, and you may be encouraged to pay a deposit. Once more, your money will disappear and so will the surveyors.
