HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Gamlingay and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Gamlingay property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Gamlingay property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .
