HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Nottinghamshire and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Nottinghamshire property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Nottinghamshire property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .
