HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Surbiton Hill and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Surbiton Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Surbiton Hill property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .
