To be comfortable before making a property purchase we recommend our clients to instruct an engineer/surveyor to make a pre-purchase survey/inspection before signing a contract.
The main purpose of any survey is to establish if there are any major defects such as subsidence or damp penetration. In some cases we are able to determine if there are any major defects (it can be assumed that any second-hand property will have some minor repairable defects) and it would be possible to skip the survey.
Alternatively, should you require an interior designer to cost/recommend changes ask them their opinion as to the need for a survey when they inspect the property.
For peace of mind: A pre-purchase written survey will cost between $300 to $600 + V.A.T.
