Will condensation migrate, in a horizontal way, between the concrete slab and floor tiles?

I live in an non-air conditioned apartment and I get condensation in a section of the corridor tile floor, apparently caused by a leaking A/C cold air duct that runs underneath, from the apartment below. In this particular section of the corridor, the floor tiles feel "cold" and one can see a film of condensation. The rest of my apartment floor is warm and dry and condenstation is not formed and the tiles are fine. My question is, if this condensation, that appears in the corridor "cold" spot section, will migrate, horizontally, underneath, between the tiles & concrete slab, to a point in the warm living room floor, with no consensation and cause some tiles in that area, to be detached and get broken? The distance between the corridor "cold" spot, where I get the condensation and the warm dry living floor, where the tiles are detached is about 30 feet. I am claiming damages to the owner of the apartment below, for the detached & broken tiles

Luis,

The short answer is that it is highly unlikely that water or moisture will migrate 30 feet to another area and cause detached tiles there.

However, if you are seeing a...
