HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Bakewell and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Bakewell property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Bakewell property's condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .
