What does the survey include? I’ve heard some surveyors are pretty harsh, we’ve been given a very good px offer I’d hate to have it rescinded due to rics.

Our house is a 70s build no damp roof or timber issues, really just the bathroom needs a new vanity unit but that’s it.

Is there anything I should be aware of?
