HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Winchester and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Winchester property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Winchester property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .
