HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Umberleigh and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Umberleigh property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Umberleigh property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .
