HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Tonbridge and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Tonbridge property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Tonbridge property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Tonbridge Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.
