HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Nechells and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Nechells property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Nechells property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Nechells property's general condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .
