HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Whitefield and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Whitefield property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Whitefield property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it best to get a full structural survey before buying an abandoned regency cottage close to Whitefield?

Full Structural Surveys are now known as Building Surveys. If you are intending to buy a modified home e.g. an unloved Whitefield house - it is the right selection of survey to purchase. A HomeBuyer Report is enough if buying a mid 20th century of later unmodified Whitefield house made out of normal construction materials. Following a thorough visual inspection of the accessible parts, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is posted to the purchaser running through in depth and critical advice on the condition of the house. There will be certain limitations with the survey because a local surveyor wont be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the Whitefield property, an example being the removing roof space contents. The following article for a simple guide on HomeBuyer Reports and Building Surveys.
