Improving the home buying and selling process survey

Home Information Pack including survey.

Agree 100%. It would speed up the process. 

But don't understand 'not right to tie buyers into deposits without one'? In England there's no deposit only exchange once surveys have been done?

I was just thinking that agents might be campaigning for buyers to start having to put non-refundable deposits down, as part of some new rules. Without a survey and searches etc. the buyer would be betting blind with the deposit.

Oh right. A deposit once the home buyer pack has been received and read would be OK but yes definitely not just after offering with how it works now.

Another piece of info that should already be upfront is the amount of ground rent and/or service charges. It often just states have your solicitor check. Presumably that's after an offer but the costs discovered might put a buyer off. By then using a solicitor might have incurred legal costs.
