HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Alnwick and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Alnwick property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Alnwick property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .
