Home Buyers Survey in Headington

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Headington and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Headington property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Headington property's condition along with an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should we purchase a full structural survey when looking into a abandoned forties home in Headington rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Now often referred to as a Structural Survey by some, it is no longer available as it has been superseded by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey. It is the correct property survey if buying an altered property like a period house. A RICS Building Survey should outline thorough and salient details concerning the Houses standard of construction and repair as well as any technical details, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house.
