HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Newcastle under Lyme and which one is the cheapest?

If the Newcastle under Lyme property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.
