My wife and I plan to purchase our 1st home in Selston. Conveyancing solicitor already chosen. The mortgage adviser suggested that a survey is not appropriate as the property was only built twenty two years ago.

At the very least you should have a Home Buyer's Report. Given the residence is over 10 years old the property will not come with a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report may be enough. They will highlight any apparent problems and recommend further investigation if appropriate. If there are any signs of material issues seek a full Building Survey from the beginning.
