It's becoming more and more common for requests to be put on buyers to have a surveyor and valuation done within 1-2 weeks. of going sale agreed.
The main reason estate agents will request this is so that if any issues are flagged by either the surveyor or valuer that would cause you to pull out are found early in the process and so not too much time has been taken.
While the intentions here do not have any sinister motivations, the impact can be unnecessary pressure put on the buyer. If you are struggling to find someone to do a survey or valuation, or you are waiting on go ahead from your solicitor before booking, simply explain that to the agent. Generally once they know you are progressing things, they will be fine.
