Simply Build It

As one myself, with the problems you have listed, i would suggest you contact a local Chartered Building Surveyor. Make sure you have all the plans and any photos of the constructions works to hand when he/she visits.

Your note suggests classic condensation, but condensation is normally a result of other factors. It is these other factors that need to be adequately addressed.

Finally, be prepared to work with the surveyor. It may be a process of illimination!

Good luck.
