HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Petworth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Petworth property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .
