Commonly your bank will try to sell you this policy but it's not always the best value.
This may be the biggest purchase you've ever made. Without expertise in construction methods and materials, you are taking a huge risk if you do not have the property surveyed. A survey is recommended for all property types but especially for older properties, properties in poor condition, protected structures and properties with extensions or attic conversions.

This is one of the biggest deals most people will ever make. It pays to have it done by a professional.
