HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Chalk Farm and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Chalk Farm property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Chalk Farm property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .
