HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Erith and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Erith property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Erith property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Periodically still described as the Structural Survey, it is no longer offered has actually been given a new moniker by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey. If you are buying an altered property such as an extended house - the Building Survey is now the most appropriate RICS survey to get a surveyor to do. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a 60 year old or less unmodified house built out of standard building materials. Around 3 days following a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, the chartered surveyors report will be posted and emailed to you specifying in depth and notable insight about the standard of construction and repair of the house. There are certain limitations with any survey insofar as a surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Erith house - such as removing the contents of cupboards.
