Wet patches on internal walls
We moved into a small studio private rental it is an extension on the main building we have noticed wet patches appearing on internal walls and there is also a nasty smell of damp in the cupboard under the sink I can see damp behind the back of the cupboard what could be causing this thanks
You need to investigate a pipes for any leaks especially if is under a sink.
Patch on the wall may be case of leaking if there is some pipes in the wall.

It's sound like a lack of ventilation, if you have any vents on the walls or trickle vents on the Windows open them, if you don't have these open a window for a little while, if this does not solve the problem call your landlord and arrange a damp proof specialist.
