Hi there
What you need to find out is it rising or penetrating damp or condensation
with out more information no advice can be given,although due to construction i wuld imagine its more of a condensation problem which could mean putting thermal boards on the external walls.

Hi , the simple solution is to insulate all the affected walls internally with a thin insulation product (internet will give variants) once this is installed it will prevent a cold surface which is usually the cause , Then re - decorate .
The more expensive way is to re-plasterboard affected wall using a foil backed board but glued to the walls NOT dot and dabbed .
