Yes, I have removed some drywall and the furring strips have water marks on them .. as well as some spotty black mold/mildew .. and are damp.

Yes, the mason applied chem-chrete (I think it is called) to all walls after the tuckpointing.

I wish it were a landlord problem.. it is a condo building, we all own our units.

yes, you all own your own units,, HOWEVER, your ownership stops at interior walls,,, the association owns the exterior IF your corp docs are anything like ours,,, here at home, we own it ALL - house, land, AND any repair problems,,, condo rules're different in my experience.

I agree with itsreallyconc... I bet it's a homeowner's association problem. Usually they're in charge of parking lot issues, roof and wall issues (when multiple units share the same roof/wall). If you have units below and/or above you who share the same exterior wall, it's probably covered .
