Even though a purchaser might obtain title insurance (which can eliminate the need for an up-to-date survey or any survey), most purchasers will require a clause in the offer to purchase which requires the vendor to provide an existing survey which is important since the purchaser of a non-condo should obtain a survey copy for future reference if the purchaser should ever want to consider location of lot boundaries for the purposes of fence locations or for the purposes of an intended addition or improvement to the property.
The survey copy is also useful to check lot size, location of building on the lot, set backs, encroachments, easements, etc. which can be reviewed by the purchaser’s lawyer when doing the legal processing for the purchase.
Only agree to provide a survey if actually have an existing copy in your possession.
