About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Falmouth

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Falmouth and which is cheaper?

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

If the Falmouth property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Falmouth property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

English Heritage

We are intending to buy a home near Merthen Camp , will this affect the property's value?

Merthen Camp is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest can certainly increase the attractiveness of an area. Other sites of interest include Nanjarrow Cross, Pixie'S Hall, The Round and Carlidnack.. A RICS surveyor will consider all local criteria when conducting home buyers survey in Falmouth. See the English Heritage website for more information on Merthen Camp.

Gas flame

Will a RICS chartered surveyor report on the state of repair of the gas supply?

The surveyor will visually survey the easily accessible parts of the system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) where relevant, in addition to gas related appliances, for instance flue/chimney maintenance. Your Falmouth RICS chartered surveyor won't actually remove fittings and will not conduct any tests on the appliances or system. Of course, gas can be hazardous and if there are any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate that all landlords must to carry out appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties are harsh .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to think about when purchasing an older property? Will maintenance costs be higher?

For houses in Falmouth built before the 20th Century, age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Falmouth property built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials. Speak to your Falmouth surveyor for further advice. Built in the 16th century, Pendennis Castle in Falmouth is a fine example of a Post Medieval-period castle.
