HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Builth Wells and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Builth Wells property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Builth Wells property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .
