You can find a variety of 1930s semi-detached Victorian townhouses along Albany Road.

Within the local area there are also larger detached houses and apartments that can be found in Scorrier Road.

Some new build bungalows can be found in Trebarva Close.

Some properties in the Redruth area may be affected by being in close proximity to abandoned mines.

A recent Environmental Search carried out by the Coal Authority, revealed that properties in the areas of Basset Street and Drump Road might potentially be affected by previous mining activities.

According to the UK Government's Public Health England, all properties within Redruth are in a raised radon area. The raised radon area, which includes Falmouth Road, Trewirgie Road and Fore Street, has a maximum radon potential of greater than 30% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where radon emissions might measure above the action level).
Properties in some areas of Redruth such as those within streets such as Chapel Street, Penryn Street and Tolgus Vean may be affected by surface water flooding as a result of heavy rainfall. If you are buying a property with a mortgage, a solicitor may advise that you get an additional Flood Risk Report (click to find out more).

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 in Redruth, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, 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.

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.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Redruth has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

What’s the difference between a HomeBuyer Report and a Building Survey?

When it comes to property surveys for home buyers there are two main choices.

The first is the RICS HomeBuyer Report; this survey is specifically designed for post-1950s flats/bungalows/maisonettes or houses of standard construction. The report uses a 'traffic light' format to indicate the opinion of the surveyor on the various aspects of the building under consideration. The HomeBuyer Report includes a current market valuation as standard which can be used to compare with your property's agreed asking price.

The second option is the RICS Building Survey; this survey is reserved for older and larger properties that may have had the original fabric of the property altered or have unique features (i.e. a thatched roof). It is the most detailed visual inspection that can be carried out.

While it doesn’t include the property valuation that comes as standard with a HomeBuyer Report, many surveyors will often include in it an estimate of the cost of works for maintenance or upgrades to help with repairs or renovation to the property.
