Hi

I have a 1930s house, which I have owned for the last 4 years and have been experiencing damp issues at the rear of the property, photos attached.
Originally at the back of the property there was a lean to, which was the width of the house this was removed 20 years ago and patio has been laid in its place, the house next door has had a single storey extension built on the wall which we have the damp issues.

Could someone please give me an idea of which trade would be able to resolve this problem or if any has any ideas on what could be causing the damp it would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Hi thanks for your reply, here is a picture further up the wall, there is a gap between the original lean to wall and the neighbors extension.

Seal the gap between your wall and neighbours or cut out and fit weep vents.
The ground level looks higher than internal floor, lower it
