My husband and I intend to buy our first house in Coxhoe. Conveyancing practitioner already chosen. The financial consultant suggested that a survey is not appropriate as the property is only 20 yrs old.
As the bare minimum you need a Home Buyer's Report. As the premises is more than ten years old the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report could be enough. The report should highlight any obvious issues and suggest further investigation if relevant. If there are any indications of material issues get a full Building Survey from the beginning.
