HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in St Helens and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the St Helens property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the St Helens property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .
