HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Swinton and which one would be the cheapest?

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

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

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Swinton property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Swinton House Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift

without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered.
