Damp on a wall at ground level

Damp on a wall at ground level sounds like rising damp (water being drawn up into the wall from the ground). You might see peeling wallpaper and discoloured patches on the lower part of the wall on the inside. The floor might also be damp.
Rising damp could mean that the 'damp proof course' has broken down. Or there may be something piled up against the outside wall which is causing the problem. You might want to check whether the outside of the wall has earth or debris against it that could be removed.

Another cause can be unauthorised decorating by wallpapering or overpainting specialist paint. Permission for any decoration needs confirming in writing as you will be charged any repair fees if found to have caused a problem.
