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 identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to buy your home.

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 your Home Buyers Survey highlights concerns relating to any of these defects your surveyor explains what the issue is in detail and provides a recommendation as to what you should do to further investigate. An example of this is if your surveyor spots signs of damp within the property. Over 5,000 properties a week in the UK have damp proofing laid to combat the issue of rising damp and home buyers fear seeing mould, peeling wall paper and sodden floors as these are all tell-tale signs of rising damp.

If your property is showing these signs and your surveyor notes using their damp monitor that there is damp internally they'll advise you to get a damp specialist to attend the property, confirm the issue advising whether it is rising damp and quote for the costs in repairing with damp proofing.

If you're looking at buying a home in St Austell which is showing signs of damp, or any other defects then you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey. The costs for repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds; however, If you can identify the problem 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.

You can find a local RICS surveyor by using the search at the bottom RHS of this page.

What is the difference between the Building Survey and the HomeBuyers Report?

There are two types of survey, the HomeBuyer Report and the Building Survey. The Building survey is essential for larger or older properties that have had any structural alterations from their original build whereas the HomeBuyers Report is suitable for properties of standard construction and properties that are under 70 years old.

Both Surveys cover the same aspects they are just go into different depths within their report. The Building Survey is the highest visual assessment you can get and goes into a through structural investigation into the construction and fabric of the property, this is a very detailed report and comes with explanations and photos (if the surveyor provides photos in their reports - some don't) and the HomeBuyers report gives a good general review of the property to help identify any defect however this is formatted in a traffic light format, red highlighting any major issues, amber less so and green everything is fine.
