HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Queenborough and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Queenborough property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Queenborough property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Brick residential property suffer from various issues and defects, from frost damaged pointing to sulphate attack. For instance, wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall and should be taken very seriously.

Is it the right choice to commission a full structural survey before acquiring a un-loved forties house in Queenborough?
