Apart from traditionally built properties familiar to most people, an infinite variety of forms of construction exist. In the case of period houses, timber framed construction presents particular problems and must be dealt with sympathetically. Old houses which apparently display alarming problems may be quite sound for their age and construction and vice versa - it is a matter of judgement. The wrong advice to a purchaser may stifle the acquisition of a sound property or alternatively result in costly unexpected repairs. The wrong advice in relation to repair or alteration could cause irreparable damage to the building.
