Hi & welcome. Unfortunately this is the most common problem with additions and one that does not have a good answer. Unless both the home and the addition are on below the frost line footers you are going to have movement between the two. That movement will result in leaks.

Many people here have the same situation as you and hopefully will be able to give you some of their advise.

You can do anything if you put your mind to
