Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Armthorpe and which is the cheapest?

If the Armthorpe property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.
