As the vendors have not found a property as yet, I would hold off on the survey, but ask them to keep you updated on progress. I would also recommend that, if you are getting a mortgage, you also hold off on the lenders valuation, so you don’t waste your hard earned cash on survey fees, until you’re sure the sale is proceeding.
Do make sure that you do get a full independent survey from a Chartered Surveyor to ensure the property has no hidden defects when the vendors are ready to proceed with the sale.
You may also find these articles outlining how to get a house survey and the different types of property survey useful.
It is important that you commission a house survey from a Chartered Surveyor before you exchange contracts to ensure that you are fully informed and aware of the structural condition of the property you are intending to purchase.
