Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hall Green and which one would be the cheapest?
The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.
If the Hall Green property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.
If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Hall Green property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .
