Party Wall and Damp at First Floor level 1Michael Hogg asked 5 months ago

Part of the first floor bathroom wall is damp (but nowhere near the bath, shower or water pipes/sources). I believe the damp is coming through the party wall from the neighbour\’s bathroom – their shower and bath is the other side from my damp patch. I have contacted the neighbour, shown them the problem and they appear not to have looked at a remedy/think it\’s their problem. They are not answering my emails. I have registered a claim with my insurers but there is no point undertaking remedial work until the damp source is rectified. Any suggestions as to my next step?

Blackfriars do a product called ‘dampseal’ that will hold back a certain amount of damp for a while…a temp fix your tenant might appreciate ?

I agree with Linda, you should be able to treat your part to prevent anything coming through.
