Question DetailsAsked on 3/30/2018

Condo fireplace removal...

A fireplace was removed a year ago in my condo built in the 80's and a drywall was put in its place. The condo has only 2 levels and I am the upper unit.
The job was done without a permit and with a non-licensed contractor.
I always wondered if the job was done correctly and apparently my brother who lives in the unit reported an on and off smell coming from close to the wall.
While I will try to see for myself if I can find any sign of water condensation using touch, smell, and sight I am wondering what an experienced pro would suggest at this point including how to detect if we have a problem, fixing it, cost and even permits now that the removal has been done anyway and of course who to hire.
The location is North East Bay California.
