To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, if he will make an assessment of the potential merits of requiring the seller of a property to pay for, arrange and make available to potential buyers a survey of that property prior to sale, and for the buyer to reimburse that cost upon completion.

The Government has been clear in its intention to publish a call for evidence looking at the process of buying and selling a home. We will use the responses received from this call for evidence to determine which changes have the greatest potential to improve the consumer experience. This call for evidence will be launched in the coming months.
