Which Building Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Boston

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice when you are buying a home made of standard building materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    A Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Boston) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this when buying a non standard property such as thatched buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Boston and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Boston property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Boston property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Boston House Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.
