You would be well advised to commission a Home Buyer's Report. Given the property was built over a decade ago the property will not come with a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report may suffice. They will highlight any apparent issues and suggest further investigation if relevant.
