Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Surbiton and which is cheaper?

If you intend to carry out significant alterations on the property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Surbiton property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .
