Having read lots of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Laindon solicitor - who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Laindon postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Clydesdale, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Laindon.
