A leaky chimney usually means that water is seeping through the chimney into a wall or ceiling somehow. It will be hard to tell how exactly the water is getting there unless there is a visual sign of water damage. The source of the issue is at the top of your chimney. There could be cracks in the chimney crown or mortar joints above the roof that are causing water to leak into your home.
