Am in the process of buying my 1st property in Caversham Heights. Conveyancing solicitor already appointed. The financial consultant advised that a survey is not needed as the house was only constructed 22 years ago.

At the very least you should order a Home Buyer's Report. As the residence is more than ten years old the property will not come with a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report may be enough. The report should highlight any apparent issues and suggest additional investigation if appropriate. If there are any indications of material issues obtain a comprehensive Building Survey from the beginning.
