Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Liverpool and which is the cheapest?
The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.
If the Liverpool property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.
If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Liverpool property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .
