HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Abingdon and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Abingdon property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Abingdon property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 15th Century coast house. Will the house's age be a problem?

Some buyers in Abingdon have considered buying a home with character, such as a Victorian home. Older construction methods and materials, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts, and Buildings constructed with traditional methods can be costly to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials. Built between 1466 and 1471, 3 Stert Street is an example of a traditional house in Abingdon.
