HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Totland and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Totland property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the Totland property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Totland property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .
