1. Survey

There are two types of Survey, a Home buyers report and building survey.

The Home buyers report will check things like damp, or any repair work that needs doing. This could help potentially re-negotiating if their's lots of work to be done.

A Building Survey - could be more relevant to older buildings, including looking under the floorboards etc. It will give you a full and comprehensive report.
