Do I really need a house survey?

Buying a home is probably the largest purchase most people will ever make. Before signing contracts and committing to a purchase, it is important to make sure you are fully aware of the condition of the property.

Types of Survey

Choosing a property survey for your particular situation depends on the condition and the age of the property you are buying. Whether you are planning an extensive change to the property also affects which survey you choose.
