Leytonstone in East London is the birthplace of David Beckham and childhood home to Jonathan Ross and Sir Alfred Hitchcock. Unfortunately it is also home to a number of properties that suffer with rising damp and the other problems that are associated with it.

The predominance of original Victorian and Edwardian houses, some of which are split into flats, is listed as one of the top 10 reasons to live in Leytonstone. This is because these period properties are realistically priced to allow you to get a lot of house for your money. Don’t waste the money you’re saving on property by allowing damp to be left untreated as this can prove very costly when problems invariably worsen.
