Known for having some of the best sailing waters in Europe, Falmouth has a diverse population with local accommodation ranging from apartments of every class to cottages, traditional houses and countryside residences. The Falmouth Docks are well known for ship repairs and refits, and the University students help to keep the town buzzing. Attracting many visitors and tourists year round, Falmouth is popular for the holiday home/lettings market and those looking at buy-to-let investments for student accommodation, or as a retirement destination.
Services We Provide
Hocking Associates offer two main services designed to ensure that our clients have everything they need when entering into property negotiations. With a focus on each individual client’s specific need, we are able to tailor our services so that they provide them with the most relevant information. Our two main services are the Building Condition Survey (not to be confused with the RICS Condition Report) and the Full Building Survey.
Building Condition Survey (not to be confused with the RICS Condition Report) – A detailed report of the condition of the property, covering the exterior and interior and any visible or accessible elements of the property. Advice will then be given as to how any defects found may be repaired.
Full Building Survey – works in very much the same way as a Building Condition Survey, but the report goes into further detail, listing all the immediate defects and making a list of any potential hazards. Professional advice is given on how to repair these defects and the potential costs of these defects, allowing our clients to be fully informed of the condition of the property before they make any decisions regarding a purchase.
In addition to our two main services we also provide a range of other property related services to ensure complete client satisfaction including Major Defects Reports, Expert Witness Reports, Purchase Renegotiation and more.
Should you have any questions regarding the services we provide to clients looking to purchase a property in the Falmouth area, or for more general information about our services, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
