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?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property.

The procedure is non-intrusive. It is highly recommended that you get one, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are thinking of 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.

If the Home Buyers Survey flags up any of these defects then our surveyor explains what you need to do to get further advice on how to investigate them and get It resolved. 

If you are concerned about your property in Falmouth has subsidence, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds. If you can identify the defect before you purchase then you can get quotes for fixing it and either share the costs with the seller, or, in worst case examples, choose not to proceed.

Does a surveyor use a ladder during a survey?

Surveyors come equipped with an array of tools and devices in order for them to diagnose and report on any defects internally and externally affecting the property that the client is looking to purchase.

Usually when clients ask whether a surveyor comes equipped with a ladder there is normally concern with a roof or a noted issue with the roofing. If you do have a concern then make sure you highlight this to the surveyor prior to their inspection to ensure it’s specifically reported on.

Your surveyor can come with a three meter ladder to access flat roofs or gain access to advantage points to assess harder to reach areas in conjunction with utilising telescopic camera mounts to document areas which are defective.
