Living in a tenement? Have you considered the best way to maintain the communal building in which you live to protect your property from damp or other such problems?

Or worry about how to go about fixing repairs on your shared building now that the council's statutory notices are no longer issued? Is there funding available for your property?

About the event

Hypostyle Architects has worked with homeowners for many years providing a professional service to help them repair and maintain their properties.  

ESPC has teamed up with Hypostyle to host a Property Maintenance Event to provide homeowners with the tools required to assess their building's condition and demonstrate how to carry out repairs and ensure correct maintenance of their property. This means you don't have to worry about any sudden large bills due to degrading buildings.
