HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Ilford property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Ilford property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .
