If the Shildon property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Shildon property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .
