HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Borehamwood and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Borehamwood property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Borehamwood property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .
