HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Purley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Purley property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Purley property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .
