There are many websites out there giving many explanations on the different types of surveys. We would describe the Homebuyers Report as a tick list being carried out by a non-specialist Surveyor who is also carrying out a Valuation.
A Full Structural Survey is carried out by a specialist Building Surveyor who identifies the property problems, gives you solutions as well as the costs and much more.
The best bet is to ring up the Surveyors that you are thinking about using and ask for a sample report so you can see what you are buying.
We always recommend a Full Structural Survey.
We can almost hear you saying that your Surveyors say that we would say this – we do genuinely mean this.

We believe that we can give you an example survey of nearly every age, type and style of property. An example survey is well worth looking at as it shows you the type of survey that you will receive with our Full Structural Survey.
