Usually a sale survey is a "lift and hold" at which the surveyor checks the bottom for condition and paint, the thru hulls, shaft and cutlass bearing and the prop. Also checks condition of the zincs and any blistering of the hull or keel dings.
It takes less than a hour and is a good chance for photos and observation by owner. Cost is usually less than $400 since the yard won't unsling or put the boat in a cradle. Since it is at the buyers request, he pays both the yard and the surveyor.
