HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Wantage and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Wantage property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Wantage property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .
