HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Barnetby le Wold and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Barnetby le Wold property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Barnetby le Wold property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it worth paying a bit more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on a flat in Barnetby le Wold?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as the Building Survey. If you are buying a modified flat like an unloved flat, this is the right home survey to go for. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a post fifties unmodified flat built out of conventional building materials. Following a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a written report is posted to the buyer giving any frequently critical details on the construction of the flat. There are certain limitations with the survey insofar as a RICS surveyor is not in a position to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric

of the Barnetby le Wold building such as removing secured panels. Also flats make a full survey more complicated, therefore the surveyor is only authorised go over the flat itself although he/she provide detail on other tenant shared parts of the property like common parts.
