HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Telford and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Telford property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Telford property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Your surveyor is required to give detail on concerns such as examining the condition of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters or reporting on the state of a representative sample of light fittings. A check for the evidence of a test on the condition
