Damp and Condensation

In the period 2017-2019, the prevalence of rising or penetrative damp in Scotland was 3% (Figure 8). Most local authorities had a similar rate to the national average, with the exception of 5 local authorities. Dumfries and Galloway (6%), Perth and Kinross (6%) and Angus (6%) were higher than the national rate whilst Glasgow City (1%) and North Lanarkshire (1%) were lower than the national rates of rising or penetrative damp.

Local authorities with higher than average condensation rates were Angus (16%), Dundee City (16%), East Lothian (15%) and Perth and Kinross (13%) (Figure 9). Seven local authorities had rates lower than Scotland's average, ranging from 1-4% with the lowest condensation rate in Inverclyde (1%).

Chart showing percent of dwellings with any damp by local authority, compared to Scotland , averaged over 2017 to 2019.

Note: The proportions in this chart are three-year averages and relate to the presence of rising or penetrative damp, while the proportions published in the main SHCS Key Findings report are annual figures, and are reported for rising damp and penetrative damp separately. East Ayrshire, Renfrewshire and Scottish Borders not shown due to small sample sizes.
