HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Handsworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Handsworth property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get an instant Handsworth Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Surveyors in Handsworth need to have knowledge of relevant local considerations and the effect may have on the home and its value. The price of property is typically more than prices outside the area which is down to conservation areas being largely unspoilt However many are falling into a poor state for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors
