What do I do now?
The mould cleaner told me that I needed to cut out a section of the plaster board above and use anti fungal sprays throughout the affected area of the cavity and joists as well as spraying the floor above.
Is this all necessary of should the problems disappear after the leak has been dealt with?
I don't believe that anyone can tell you if it is necessary without being on site to evaluate the problem.
Why would you trust the opinions of people you don't know on an internet forum who have not seen the situation instead of the person who examined the situation and you (probably) paid to give you advice?
If I pay someone to help me with a problem, I usually try to do what he tells me to do unless I have cause to distrust him.
