HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Croston and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Croston property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the Croston property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .
