HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Newport and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Newport property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Newport property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .
