HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Haverhill and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Haverhill property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give comprehensive details of the Haverhill property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .
