HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Bacup and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Bacup property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the Bacup property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Bacup property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .
