HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Westcliff On Sea and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Westcliff On Sea property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Westcliff On Sea property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .
