Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled cottage. Are there any potential issues that need to be investigated?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Problems which impact stone-built property can vary greatly, with issues like weathered stone being quote common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor look at the condition or the safety of the gas installations?
