Am in the process of buying my first property in West Smithfield. Conveyancing practitioner has been chosen. The financial consultant pointed out that a survey is not needed as the house is just fifteen years old.

At the very least you should have a Home Buyer's Report. As the premises is more than 10 years old the property will not come with a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report could suffice. The report should highlight any obvious problems and suggest additional investigation if appropriate. If there are any indications of problems seek a full structural survey.
