It could be a leaking pipe. This is the most common cause of dampness on internal walls.

Do you have solid Floors?

Problems can occur on internal walls , if the floor has been filled in .
The reason being is many companies who do under pinning and concrete floors do not allow for the damp proof course , and once filled in are above this .
