Of course ! Contact your landlord and tell that although rent is rising the living conditions are worsening. The very least, he is legally responsible for getting on top of that damp problem and to ensure the property is fit to be lived in.
However, redecorating is a bit of a shady area. If it’s cosmetic, landlords usually don’t bother until there is a new tenant coming in. You have to negotiate about it, but it’s very reasonable to get them to pay for the materials and you do the work.
