HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Clayton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Clayton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Clayton property's condition as well as advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .
