A friend is looking to buy a Victorian Terraced house, and it doesn't have a damp course.
After spinning her an elaborate story about having the entire house sliced out of the terrace and lifted up on blocks while a damp course is fitted, I promised to ask around to find out how much she should expect to pay to have a chemical DPC done.
I seem to recall someone else having the chemical DPC, and it requiring a certain amount of replastering to be done after, because the plaster had to be stripped back at the bottom of the wall. Is this normal (or even anything to do with the DPC?)
Any hints, tips gratefully received.
