Thanks for the advice. I think you have a good pointm, it could be condensation, I will investigate how to deal with that I will also talk to the freeholder re checking out the potential damp.
Enjoy your Sunday.

I can't recommend anyone, but all I'd say is there are lots of unscrupulous firms out there calling themselves 'damp specialists'. At least get a couple of quotes and, depending on how extensive the work required is, you might want to spend a couple of hundred pounds getting a surveyor's opinion so that you know for yourself definitively what's needed.
Is it definitely damp as opposed to condensation? If it is damp and you live in a flat, aren't you the leaseholder and, that being the case, isn't the freeholder responsible for the fabric of the building?
