Am in the process of buying my first property in Grasmere. Conveyancing solicitor already instructed. The broker pointed out that a survey is not necessary as the property was only built 16 yrs ago.
You would be best advised to have a Home Buyer's Report. Given the residence is more than ten years old the property will be without a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report may be sufficient. The report should highlight any apparent issues and recommend additional investigation where relevant. If there are any signs of material issues get a full Building Survey from the beginning.
