Leaking Basement Wall
Yes, you need a short (2" if stucco siding) concrete stem wall and a footing underneath. The apron concrete in front of the wall is letting water wick to the living space. Check with your building department as you also need egress window for the basement and/or bedroom down there. Also light and ventilation, heat, electrical, utilities may need outside air source if gas, etc.
Be safe, Gary
