What's the consensus on house buying surveys?
Do many of you bother with more than just the standard mortgage survey in the hope they'd pickup anything woefully obvious?
I've only had the standard survey before but am wondering whether it's worth upgrading the mortgage company survey or instructing a local surveyor. I think its a low risk property, the only reason I'm considering it is that there is a small extension on it.
(It's a late 90s build in what seems like ok structural condition). Am I right in thinking a full survey will have a ton of caveats anyway?
