Having read lots of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Borrowash solicitor - who is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Nationwide will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Nationwide 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 conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Borrowash postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Nationwide, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Borrowash.
