You do have a problem,you are trying to stop the water
comming in from the inside, I can only think it would
be best to stop it from the outside, and thats where the
problem comes in.
You can get a contractor in to do the work, or you can do
it yourself.
but it means you will have to dig down to the foundations
on the outside of the building,clean the walls, then paint
the walls with a heavy waterproof paint, let it dry then
back fill.or after you have painted the walls make a
French drain,but that won't help if you live on flat ground.
Hope it works.
