Home Buyers Survey in Horley

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Horley and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Horley property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Horley property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .
