My home is built on the side of a hill. On the backside of the house, there is a 10'cement block wall supporting the garage. Whenever it rains, this wall oozes water. Some of the paint is already peeling. One builder I asked said this is both normal and not harmful to the wall/foundation. Is this true?

He's a nut, or incompetent. No house should have any water entering it. It can cause foundation problems through undermining. If this wall is on the downside of a hill, a simple swale should solve the problem.
