Top tips for a Falmouth Home Buyers Survey


Falmouth is a seaside town in Cornwall on its south coast and on the west bank of the River Fal's estuary. It hosts Pendennis Castle, which Henry VIII built in 1540. Housing development took impetus from the arrival of the railway in 1863.

The town offers a huge choice of styles of property including the large Georgian houses on Church Street, the large Victorian houses in Kimberley Park Road, the Victorian terrace houses on Bar Lane, the modern detached houses in Arwenack Avenue and the classic 1930s semi-detached houses in Dracaena Avenue.

New build developments include the 3 bedroom semi-detached houses in Meadowbank Road, the detached houses in Pickle Close, Swanvale and the terrace houses in Truro Hill, Penryn.

Properties in Falmouth built in close proximity to the bank of the River Fal ria, in streets such as Arwenack Street and Church Street, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Falmouth, including streets such as Dracaena Avenue and King's Avenue, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 30% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Falmouth area mainly centre around the main road – Melvill Rd A39.

CornwallCornwall is the most south-westerly county in England and is surrounded by water on three sides, touching only Devon county by land. It was traditionally associated with tin mining and fishing, but nowadays the main economic activity in the county is tourism. The county town and only city is Truro. Other towns include Falmouth, Camborne and Redruth.

Cornwall is a peninsula with no motorways, few trunk roads (A39 and A30 are among them), a limited railway network and has a small airport in Newquay. The main transport hub is Truro and both Truro and Penzance have some direct railway services to London Paddington.

Cornwall has some beautiful coastal villages and towns including, for example, St Ives and Falmouth. Land's End is a popular tourist destination and is the starting point for people tackling the journey, whether on foot or bike or motorbike, to John O'Groats, the most northerly village in Scotland.

There is one university, the Falmouth University, as well as sites of the University of Exeter. Cornwall is a place of many festivals - there are frequent festivals at the Lizard for example and Porthcurno is the site of the Minack Theatre, an open-air amphitheatre, constructed above a gully with a rocky granite outcrop jutting into the sea. Surfing is very popular in the county.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

The goal of the Home Buyers Survey, whether the Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or the HomeBuyers Report, is to provide reassurance when buying a home and this is the case if you are considering buying a property in Falmouth.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

What should you do when the surveyor finds a defect that affects the property price?

This is a very difficult situation to be in. You have agreed a price with the seller not knowing of this issue and now have the issue of needing to revisit your offer.

The best advice is to inform the seller/estate agent of the issue you have uncovered, provide the specific information from the report from your Building Surveyor (not the full report) and then discuss a solution that accounts for the repair works.
