Long term woodworm infestation causes floor to collapse.  It would appear this is caused by the lack of sub floor ventilation, or at least where it has been restricted by cavity wall insulation. If you do purchase a property, it would be a good idea to check your sub floor vents are clear, and sleeved to prevent issues like this occur. If you need help with a woodworm survey give us a shout.
