HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in South Hackney and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the South Hackney property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations on the South Hackney property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the South Hackney property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .
