Home Buyers Survey in Southall

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Southall and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Southall property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Southall property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

To ascertain the value of the property the valuer will pair awareness of the Southall property market as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been employed.
