Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Hampshire and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Hampshire property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Hampshire property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .
