Home Buyers Survey in Great Missenden

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Great Missenden and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Great Missenden property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Great Missenden property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .
