HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Tring and which is cheaper?

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

If the Tring property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Tring property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .
