HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Kennington and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Kennington property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Kennington property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'.
