Home Buyers Survey in Chulmleigh

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Chulmleigh and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Chulmleigh property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Chulmleigh property's general condition and it includes information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .
