Why do I need a survey?

The conveyancing process operates on the principle of ‘caveat emptor’ which means ‘let the buyer beware’ and it can be broken down in the following way.

Your solicitors make sure the property is legally okay to buy, the mortgage lender makes sure the property is financially okay to buy and the surveyor you hire to carry out a homebuyer report/building survey makes sure the property is structurally okay to buy.

In light of this, the purpose of the survey is to make sure you are aware of any defects present in the property when you buy it. If defects are found, then the survey gives you the opportunity to bargain with the seller, whether it be a reduction in price or an agreement that the seller makes good on the work necessary before purchase.
