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 .

Both in Hall Green, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact damp weather can have on property is not given more thought by buyers. Signs that rainwater goods are at risk include corroded downspouts.
