    Pictures from the outside, near and far will help. Including the guttering above, if any.

    Not sure if these photos help anyway to find reason..? I couldn't see any reason. House is 80+ years old and this door in installed recently only. Outside some areas shows need to repointing but not nearer to this door.

    Did you have the doors installed? Do they have a guarantee?

    There is a row of 3 courses of bricks, 6 courses above the doors. Is it leaking from there?

    No information on that from previous owner. Door looks pretty new.

    Seepage/leak/water mark is mainly in this area inside the door. Not on the Top Seepage Area.JPG

    But if there is a gap then it could be running down into the cavity and bridging across.

    Have you just bought this house? Did you have a survey? What did they find?

    Nothing above door to cast off rain so just running down brickwork and in around frame.
    Remove an inner trim , probably find big gaps around frame.
