HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Clitheroe and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Clitheroe property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension on the Clitheroe property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Clitheroe property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Condition rating 2 suggests that the aspect of the house or flat in question will need some work. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a house or flat does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.
