Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Sale and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Sale property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Sale property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .
