DPC installed two owners ago
The house was built some time between 1910 and 1920.
It appears "vertical DPC" (I am not sure what it is) was installed in 2007 and most of the walls have been replastered inside to 1 meter high by a local damp proving company. They provided 30 years guarantee for "rising damp" to the owners at the time. But the house was sold twice since then.
There is no paperwork whatsoever regarding the issues that the DPC meant to solve. There is also no paperwork regarding the materials used, just a plan of the building showing the parts where the walls were replastered and vertical DPC installed.
At the moment there is no sign of any damp issues and the house appears to be pristine.
