A MUM has told of the stress she has been put under due to the “ridiculous conditions” of her council house.

Twenty-five-year-old Katy Dalziel lives in Duntocher with her partner, Matthew, and two boys, aged three and four.

They moved into their home on Beeches Road in September last year but had to lodge complaints to West Dunbartonshire Council (WDC) within three weeks.

Every room in the house is said to have condensation, as well as mould in the kitchen and in a cupboard.

Housing chiefs have replaced the bathroom in the property and allocated the family two fans.

The kitchen is due to be painted next week.

Katy said: “This house wasn’t safe for people to live in with the woodworm, wet rot, mould and condensation.

“I have been told numerous times that I should never have been offered the house in the condition that it was in by people who work for the council.

“Someone passed this house as safe and I think they should be getting into big trouble for what they have put my family through.

“I’ve had to move from here to my mum’s and back, constantly back and forth.

“The two fans don’t make an ounce of difference in regard to condensation. I can’t tell about a big fan placed recently because I haven’t had time to notice a difference.

“Also, the council don’t get jobs completed or started when they say they will, it’s an absolute joke.”

Katy is concerned about her family’s health as one of her children is asthmatic and items including clothing are being damaged.

She added: “I’ve had to replace all my flooring three times, and spent thousands of pounds, which I don’t have, to have it ripped up.

“We don’t want to move because we just moved recently, but that is the next stage if nothing is done.”

A spokeswoman for WDC said: “As soon as we were made aware, officers visited the property and carried out specialist treatment as well as installing a ventilation unit.

“We are scheduled to return to the property to complete the final piece of work required next week and will continue to liaise with the tenant until this is resolved.”
