HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Hope Valley and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hope Valley property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Hope Valley property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Hope Valley Homebuyers Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.
