HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Cramlington and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Cramlington property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Cramlington property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .
