    I have had excellent results with Permagard Kiesol cream - expensive but worth every penny.

    Very rare it is required. Most damp problems are curable.

    Find and remove the source of the moisture.

    Does the damp also appear on the neighbours side of the wall?

    Don't know if it helps, but if you can see the mortar line, you could use Dry Rods. They also make Dry Zone cream.

    I've used the rods, but it's too early to comment, but so far, it looks likes it has worked.

    Not sure there is a better, the rods, flow through the mortar (allegedly) so you don't need to drill the brick.
    Perhaps for ease, just re-inject the bricks.
