How many of you had a structural survey before buying?

Hi there,

How many people had a structural survey, or equivalent, done before buying their house? The house we have an offer on appears to be solid, is granite built in the '50's, doesn't appear damp and looks good to me, but then I know little about buildings.

Any thoughts welcome.

Thanks

Sally

Hi Sally
We were in the same position as you. The house looked solid and there were no obvious problems that we noted in our 1/2hr viewing visit!!!!. The estate agent from VEF told us that people don't really bother with a survey in France. So we took their advice and purchased without a survey and so far so good 10 years+. I suppose a surveyor may tell you differently. I guess it is up to you in the end and what you attitudes to risk are. Good Luck
