Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled cottage. What related issues should we be aware of? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to property in Newton Le Willows, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for elements such as the junctions of external walls. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.
