Answer: In some cases
Explanation: In most cases it is not the Seller's responsibility to conduct a land survey, although they may wish to and should discuss this with their listing agent. From the Buyer's perspective, generally speaking, the survey exists to protect your investment. Just as you would use Carfax to help with the purchase of a car, you should get a survey to help with the purchase of your property. You are most likely spending hundreds of thousands of dollars,and should definitely consider having a survey done to protect your investment.
