Abstract

Examines the problem of dry rot appearing during a refurbishment contract. Discusses investigation techniques for dry rot, and the role and management of specialist treatment firms. Concludes that professional surveyors are potentially at risk from negligence suits if their advice does not set out a clear picture of risks faced by their clients, stating that the acceptance of a risk “on behalf of” a client, without seeking their opinion, is inappropriate.
