HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Okehampton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Okehampton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Okehampton property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .
