What does 'Homebuyers Survey' mean?

Homebuyers Survey

A type of Survey more detailed and more expensive than a Valuation Survey because the surveyor is instructed to report not only on the value but the general condition of the property such as windows, damp, etc. This type of survey does not include any structural issues unless they are immediately obvious and may affect the value of the property. As such they are quite popular with those buying a flat who not only want to see the value but also any immediate issues. The surveyor, however, should not speculate on the costs of any issues he reports. For more information see What a Property Survey Really Means
