HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Albany Park and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Albany Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Albany Park property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .
