HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in South East London and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the South East London property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the South East London property's condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .
