HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Royton and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Royton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Royton property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .
