HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Merthyr Tydfil and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Merthyr Tydfil property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Merthyr Tydfil property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .
