Which Property Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Hanslope and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Hanslope property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Hanslope property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .
