Upstairs bathroom sink leaking through ceiling


Hello, just bought a new home and have had two leaking issues can someone tell me what this could be from please? HELP

1) Every time I turn on upstairs sink in master bath, there seems to be leaking through the edge of air vent or maybe ceiling downstairs over formal dining area?

2) Every time I wash clothes in my laundry room, there is leaking coming from the wall on the other side in the garage. It is never wet behind washer from inside just outside leaking, has caused drywall to be a little wet and tear?

Pictures will be helpful----The laundry---you are going to need to open up the drywall and look--
The pipe that is connected to the drain box is leaking---I could guess--but open the garage wall and look.

Vanity? If there is no leak inside the vanity cabinet---then remove the vanity--open the wall and look.
Might be someone forgot to glue a pipe---screw made a hole--anything.

The superintendent came over today with the plumbers to inspect the leak, they said there was a small hole in the pipe coming from the master shower, now they have to drill out my expensive tiles in the shower to replace pipe and all the wet dry wall. What a pain!!!!!

Better than having the floor rot out and have to do any entire remodel

They said it's a pipe connected to the shower and the pipe has a small hole. It has leaked all over the ceiling of my dining room, they had to send an environmentalist out to detect all the wet drywall to be torn out, already 8 ft by 3 ft has been cut out. But is it really necessary to tear that much of my shower out to replace a pipe??
