    No recommendations, but very appropriate day to ask this. Hope you are not utterly flooded!

    Nothing serious, just some damp patches on parts of the wall.

    No recommendations I'm afraid, but stopping water getting in a building can potentially be a very complex and expensive process. (but not necessarily)

    I assume you live in your own village house? Otherwise contractors might not be the first port of call.

    Yes, in a village house, so no management company....

    The rooftop on a village house needs yearly maintenance, plain and simple. Should be coated in some sort of grout/mortar sealant on a regular basis.

    Seeing discolored areas in our ceiling and cracks, not that the LL gives 2 shits, happy to ask for more rent during pandemic and fall in rental prices while having never visited the property or done anything to increase its longevity, value or usability ....

    the contractor doesn't much matter, you have to watch them like a hawk to avoid them covering up without inspection.

    The problem for the layman of course is that they don't know what they're looking for. Maybe you can advise on what that is exactly?

    yes im sure that a project like this is not that straight forward. if it was that easy we would all be doing it ourselves & watching youtube is definitely not going to help lol
