Homebuyer Reports are less detailed than Building Surveys, but the interior and exterior of the property are still inspected. The surveyor will provide information as to the construction and general condition of the property, identify any risks and defects, and highlight matters that need to be referred to your legal adviser.
This report is more suitable for flats, bungalows, and houses that are in a reasonable condition and of traditional construction.
Unlike Building Surveys, Homebuyer Reports include a valuation and reinstatement cost for the property.
The report will usually take around 2 hours (this may vary depending on the size of the property) and will be sent out to you within 5 working days from the date of the survey.
