If the Little Oakley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Little Oakley property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .
