Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an old converted barn. What impact will the property's cladding have on regular maintenance?

Use of traditional methods can create difficulties for an owner. Properties featuring traditional methods can be expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may also need to be sourced. This can mean long-term upkeep. As an example of Medieval building, the Kersal in Salford was constructed in around 1515.

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor look at the condition of the gas installations?

A will locate and visually inspect any accessible parts of the system. This will include the gas pipe route at the building, in addition to gas connected fixtures, for instance flue/chimney maintenance. Fittings will not however be removed. The gas system won't be tested. Of course, gas is potentially deadly and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property with stone walls create issues? Are there specific factors to bear in mind, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregularly built walls as stones are less likely to come loose or the mortar to decay. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.
