CornwallCornwall is the most south-westerly county in England and is surrounded by water on three sides, touching only Devon county by land.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you are considering buying a property in Truro, incredibly important.

Can a RICS surveyor comment on the removal of a load bearing wall?

If the seller has removed a wall, or you are planning to remove a wall in the property then a RICS surveyor cannot definitively confirm if the wall is or is not load bearing because their inspection is only visual. The surveyor may give their opinion, however it will come with a caveat that you should obtain an intrusive assessment to confirm.

Before the removal of a load bearing wall, you should always instruct a local structural engineer in Truro to provide their definitive opinion on if the wall is or is not a load bearing wall.
