Home Buyers Survey in Morecambe

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Morecambe and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Morecambe property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Morecambe property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .
