    It's possible that soil stack is leaking below ground and the wall is sucking up the moisture. I can see evidence of a chemical damp course so someone has tried to address the problem.

In older properties they tended to have breathable walls and paint on either side. There could be a condensation problem penetrating damp problem or something else like guttering or pointing issues. You need a surveyor to assess and go from there. Check out Peter Cox on You tube he is an expert
      I think it was built 1925. There's no such thing as damp? It's just a pure coincidence that the interior walls that feel wet (especially after rain) so happen to have cracks/damage on the outside wall behind it?

          I think Stacker meant rising damp. There have been several posts mentioning the gutters etc which can allow water to get inside the house. In all housing it is essential to ensure that the roof , chimney flashings, gutters,drains etc are doing the job for which they were intended.

            Even if you are an AST "tenant", you are tenant of Sarah, not a tenant of Sarah's landlord. If Sarah ceases to be a tenant that does not make you a tenant of Sarah's landlord (nor does any deposit you paid to Sarah have anything to do with Sarah's landlord).

            Sarah's right of...

            Hello, I have a question about my legal status in private rented accommodation.

            I live in a private rented house. The entire house is rented from the landlord by one individual (let's call her Sara). Sara has a bedroom in the house and a lot of stuff in the cupboards all around the house....

            There's not normally an issue with the gas certificate timing other than the very first one.
            That said email is not how you give people documents like that, unless the tenant has agreed to be served them by email.

            by Mr. Sparkle
            About 3 weeks ago I had a gas certificate issued.

            I forgot to email the tenant a copy of the document.

            I plan to evict the tenant with either a Section 8 or 21 and want to know whether there is any issue regarding the delay to give the tenant the gas cert?

            There...

            No idea if the GSC you have is OK or not (1st place, you don;t say) or what the timing is for when it should be served. So difficult to answer.
