More surveyors applying the CYA principle!! From the first post I get the impression that the surveyor is suggesting to the potential purchaser that they arrange for a survey not that the vendor gets a survey done. The EA is talking nonsense IMHO - he just wants to collect his commission asap. The purchaser has paid for a housebuyers report why should you pick up the tab for its recommends? Either they want to go ahead or not.

Sorry, but if the is standing water in the drains, I think you will be wasting your money putting a camera down as all the camera will see is "water"

Thanks Keystone, that's right, the surveyor clearly says "you (the buyer) are advised to instruct ..." a drainage company to prepare a report. The EA has put the ball back in my court and has provided me with contact details for a drainage company. Not sure why it's back with me though, I too would think it's the purchaser's responsibility to arrange the survey for their own peace of mind.
