What are the causes of damp issues?

The majority of damp caused in homes is a result of poor maintenance, a lack of adequate ventilation and often in older properties, high ground levels can result in the lack of an effective damp proof course.  Modern properties often have very little natural ventilation and combined with multi occupation and poor use of heating can result in condensation damp.
