Home Buyer Report or Structural Survey?

Are you still deciding whether to have a home buyer report or structural survey?  Always choose a structural survey.  Why?

If you want peace of mind that you are not buying a problem property then choosing a structural survey rather than a home buyer report is always best.  A structural survey is far more detailed than a home buyer report.   A home buyer report will not include costs for any building work that is required to make good any property defects whereas these costs are included in a structural survey.  You will find that these costs can be used to negotiate on the purchase price and help to save you money on your next home.  Your home buyer report Surveyor will generally not meet you at the property whereas with a structural survey your Surveyor will.  Meeting your Surveyor at the property is invaluable as you will be able to talk through any concerns or get advice on future extension plans.

A structural survey is always best

This is the 3rd time we have used 1stAssociated for our structural survey and we are more than happy with everything the Surveyors have done for us on each survey. Meeting the Surveyor at the properties has been great and the speed at which the structural surveys were arranged and completed was brilliant. I am pleased to say we will be purchasing this property and I would not hesitate in recommending 1stAssociated to my friends and family. Thank you.

Miss Tian, London


This is the second structural survey we have booked with 1stAssociated. Again we met the Surveyor at the property, which we found very helpful. The report we received was very detailed and easy to understand and even included 3D sketches of the property as well as an immediate work programme of basic maintenance needed to be carried out should we go ahead and buy the property as the property is in a dilapidated state. We are pleased to say we will be going ahead with the purchase of the property and would like to thank the Surveyor for all his help.

Mr Leadbeatter, Nottingham


I was concerned about damp I had seen on the kitchen walls on a 1920's - 1930's bungalow I was interested in buying in Farnborough. I decided to have a full structural survey carried out on the property and I am so pleased I did. The Surveyor was brilliant, very knowledgeable. He met me at the property and discovered problems with the roof as well as the dampness and also found asbestos in the garage roof. He gave me anticipated costs for the work required and I am now in negotiations on the price with the vendor before I decide whether to go ahead with the property. Overall the survey was 100% brilliant!
