HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Ruislip and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Ruislip property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Ruislip property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .
