Hi,

Firstly thank you to anyone who takes the time to help me out.

I have just moved into a property. It has 30 years dp course on it, although I need to pay £50 to transfer this into my name. They have been out to look at the patch some time ago, but said it was likely from condensation. I also mentioned a smell in the kitchen and they advised a vent be installed.

Anyway back to my issue. We have had heavy rainfall over the last few days, I've looked at the patch that was meant to be caused by condensation and there appears to be a large water mark. The outside of the house is Stone Walls, I have looked under the window sill and can not see any point of entry for water to get in.

Any ideas on what this could be caused by? Here is the link to the picture

What should I do next

Thanks
Stacey

Have you checked for leaking drain pipes ?
