HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Marazion and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about insects affecting properties nearby. Is a Building Survey advisable?

Marazion houses will often be free of major pest problems. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. An affected house may not always be easy to identify, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. Your Marazion surveyor may report on signs of infestation.

There are a huge number of issues which could affect property values for instance the amount of ground rent payable or the height of ceilings. One method is to set against values registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

Lucerne, Lukes Lane, St Hilary, Penzance, Penwith, Cornwall, TR20 9DY a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £45, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get a professional house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be loose blue asbestos containing roof tiles at the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials e.g. garage roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in shed roofs.

All forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Its existence does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to move the asbestos and expert advice should be sought ASAP. Never attempt to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Marazion survey. Your Marazion surveyor should report on potential asbestos and will offer advice.
