Having read lots of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Barton Le Clay solicitor - who is on the RBS conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
RBS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually RBS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend.

The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard inquiry of the vendor to discover whether the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer could commence a legal claim for losses as a result of such an incorrect response. A purchaser’s solicitors should also conduct an enviro search. This will reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be made.
