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 Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in St Austell 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.

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 St Austell 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.

How long do I have to wait for my survey?

When you instruct Sam Conveyancing to complete a survey on a property you will receive an email from us stating all the information that you need to know about your survey.

Once our surveyor has completed the survey at the property they will call you when they are back in their office between 4pm-6pm on the same the day to inform you if they found any defects at the property.

The surveyor will then type up the report and email it directly to you 5 working days later.

However, If following the survey the surveyor feels the report is going to take longer to produce than the normal time frame, due to the amount of detail required, then they’ll advise you of when the survey report will be made available to you.
