Top tips for a Penzance Home Buyers Survey


Penzance is a town with a variety of different types of properties such as detached, and semi-detached houses built in the Victorian period as well as some properties dating back to the Edwardian period which can be found along Trewithen Road. 

Within the town there are also a selection of larger and modern dwellings which can be found in Wharf Road.

Inland from the coast you can find a warren of roads and squares lined with Victorian and Georgian houses. 

Some are very large - you can see the occasional eight-bedroomed late Victorian terrace house - and some buildings are listed, such as a Grade II listed five bedroom house in Regent Square.

You can also find some Victorian town houses built in the 1830s along Barwis Hill.

New build properties can be found in streets such as Market Jew Street.

Properties in some areas of Penzance may be affected by surface water flooding. Properties within Alexandra Road, Wharf Road are key areas where dwellings can 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).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, all properties within Penzance are in a raised radon area. Properties in close proximity to streets such as Jennings Street, Union Street and St Clare Street have a higher chance than average of being affected by radon emission. The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of greater than 30% and at least 10 - 30% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).
Where roof tiles are laid to straight regular courses a Penzance based building surveyor will need to inspect if they appear to be in a poor condition and in need of repair. A closer inspection from a ladder may reveal the presence of cracked tiles.

Tiles specialised for Georgian properties found along Alexander Place may need to be rebedded.

When buying a property with a mortgage, it is important to get a property survey to assess the condition of the dwelling. If the property needs repair due to the condition of the tiles, Apex Roofing can be found at 2 Pine Rd, Penzance TR18 4QY.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Penzance and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Penzance's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
