HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Kingswood and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Kingswood property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Kingswood property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .
