Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there may be asbestos roof gutters present in the home I am buying. Is this a major concern and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a deleterious substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as flooring materials. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fireplace. Most asbestos was imported from Canada. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a solitary fibre is not fatal.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to remove the asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible. Getting rid of asbestos will be costly must always be conducted by experts. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos during the survey. Surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos and will suggest further investigation.

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.
