HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Lytham St Annes and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Lytham St Annes property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Lytham St Annes property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.RICS guidelines on the issue of vermin are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Lytham St Annes surveyor.
