HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Chelsea and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Chelsea property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Chelsea property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more details you can get an instant Chelsea Home Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to investigate when purchasing a house built in around 1790? What consequences will the house's age have on upkeep?

Older construction methods and materials can create issues for homeowners. Chelsea structures built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials. If you are uncertain, speak to the chartered surveyor for more detail.
