Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Pound Hill, and think we saw signs of pests in the study. Will a property surveyor look into this?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.
