20% of property buyers don’t get a survey done !!!

Feb 20, 2018

Today, the Irish law Society issued an e-Zine to it’s members with one heading that 1 in 5 buyers are not having any survey completed on the property they are buying. The Law society is very concerned.

Solicitors advise purchasers in most circumstances to get the property they are buying surveyed. However, the Conveyancing Committee has received reports that up to 20% of purchasers of houses or apartments do not get a survey.

If this unwise practice spreads, the Committee is concerned that solicitors may find themselves in the firing line even though they gave very sound advice.
