Lawyers asked to update building care contact details

11 August 2009

Legal professionals in Scotland are being urged to update their records relating to enquiries over building protection and preservation.

The Property Care Association (PCA), which represents the UK’s structural waterproofing, wood preservation, damp-proofing, flood remediation and structural repair sectors, took over the former British Wood Preserving and Damp-proofing Association (BWPDA) in 2006, and has since been a standalone association.

It still incorporates the BWPDA, but specifications and enquiries should now be directed to the PCA.

Yasmin Chopin, executive director of the PCA said: “Property professionals in the legal sector have for many years contacted the BWPDA for advice on damp and related matters.

“We still find that enquiries come to us in the name of the BWPDA, and would urge people to come directly to the PCA.”

As well as delivering a trusted repair procedure, PCA members are able to carry out specialist surveys as part of the housebuying procedure to identify potential problems, as well as a range of other services.
