Dry rot is very common due to the amount of timber used in both old and new buildings. It can be found anywhere in the property but the most common places are in the roof (suggesting a leaking roof), in the bathroom (suggesting poor seals around shower trays, baths, etc.), in the kitchen (suggesting leaking washing machine or sink) and in the beams that hold the floor (usually to be found with rising damp).
Generally treatment should be carried out immediately as dry rot can spread throughout a property and cause major damage.
