Do I need to have a building survey as well as the conveyancing searches?

Conveyancing and surveys of the building you are planning to buy shouldn’t be confused, as they serve very different purposes.

The conveyancing looks at the entire legal aspect of the purchase, from checking the seller is in the legal position to sell the house to ascertaining the impact to you of buying the property based on the findings of local searches.

A building survey, while also identifying the financial implications to you of any remedial work, is designed to look at the fabric of the structure to ensure it is basically safe and sound.

In-Deed strongly advises you to order a building survey from a quality surveyor, so that you know what you are buying. In some cases, it can either confirm that it’s not worth buying, or you can use the information in the report to renegotiate the asking price with the seller.
