When I moved from England to Scotland, I paid for a full survey, even though the house had been built by the man, who was a builder by trade (we all have heard about chancers) whose family lived in the house. Two main reasons: one a not good experience previously though nothing like the horrible situation the OP is in and secondly, in Scotland, house purchase rules are different - there can be no gazumping, for example.
What was really interesting was that, despite using solicitors of very long standing in the centre of Edinburgh (which is not cheap!), the cost of the conveyance, survey and land registry (and I have a larger plot here) was nearly £1000 less than the conveyance on the sale of the English property which was of equivalent floor space.
Things have changed since I bought, but I'd still pay for a full survey prior to selling. Not least because my property, not less than 500 metres from the sea, is apparently at flood risk though I'm 67.5 metres above sea level!!
