Leak coming from the wall of the extended kitchen

How can I cover the leak from the outside? It rained today and I could see that the leak comes between the wall of the house and the extended kitchen. Can I cover it with cement or any reliable option available? At the moment I could see that the previous occupier just covered it with something metal. Please advise. Thanks

Hi this is a tricky one to solve without seeing the problem in person.
As a temporary solution to what sounds like a vertical DPC issue, would be a good quality weatherproof sealant. CT1 is a very good sealant which can be used on most materials and comes in a huge range of colours.

I think you would have to establish first whether this leak is related to water services I.E pipes in the vicinity or roof related, is this a permanent leak or does it get worse with weather(rain) Difficult without seeing it.
