Job description

We live in central Canterbury in a Victorian house. When we bought the property, professionals carried out damp proofing on walls facing passage way (around 1 meter high). Because some of the bricks were deteriorating and the front living room felt cold, we were advised to render the walls (passage way and adjoining). Over the last 6-9 months, damp in kitchen and front living room (facing passage way) has got worse and more patches in the living room on other walls have now also shown signs of humid patches. We wonder whether there could be a ruptured pipe in underground or whether the rendering has actually made the humidity problem inside rooms worse because there is not evaporation.
