That will happen with any house if it's left unheated and abandoned long enough. The thermal bridging through the ceiling joists cools the ceiling and ambient moisture moves to those cooler areas where it either collects dust or allows mold to grow.

Get the house opened up, dried out, use a pigmented shellac on the walls to seal them and then repaint and it will probably be fine.

OT - OF!!!
