I’ve placed an offer on a plot of land and instinctively want to get it surveyed before committing myself too far. However, try as I might, I can find no real advice on whether it is worth getting a survey or not. Even finding a surveyor who does such a survey is proving a challenge, which makes me think it’s not the norm to have one done.
I’ve examined the plot (on a normal residential street) and it looks fine to the untrained eye (slope and a few apple trees aside).
So – can anyone advise? To survey or not to survey? What will it tell me? And if it’s worth doing – can anyone recommend a surveyor in Surrey?
