Issues with Balsa cored hulls

So CardiacPaul as a surveyor what is it that helps understand if a balsa cored hull is robust or is susceptable to osmosic intrusion? How can I verify that it is actually balsa cored in the lower hull and then what would you suggest that I look for to give me some confidence that it is worth bidding on before I hire a surveyor?
Appreciate your professional opinion - I don't have any experience with Balsa cored hulls all my previous boats were fiberglass hulls.
