Independent Chartered Surveyors
With over 30 years experience offering first class surveying services to clients throughout Padstow and the surrounding area, Hocking Associates provide a dedicated service designed to give clients all the information they need when considering a property for purchase. When purchasing a property it is essential that you request the assistance of an expert surveyor as they are able to complete a thorough assessment of the property in question, looking at all visible and accessible areas of the property, listing any defects found.
Hocking Associates was established in 1987 and since then we have conducted detailed inspections on over 17000 properties in a range of styles and sizes. Operating throughout the entirety of Cornwall, we are an independent practice dedicated to providing in depth and unbiased reports solely for the benefit of our client.
Padstow remains a working fishing port but is a relatively small harbour, and the harbour itself is fairly tidal and therefore not always accessible. It nonetheless remains a popular holiday destination attracting visitors from far and wide who often base themselves in Padstow and explore the nearby resorts of Polzeath, Daymer Bay, Trebetherick, Rock and Port Isaac, which is of course famous for the television series Doc Martin and the home of the ever popular Fisherman’s Friends shanty singers. Padstow is also very much on the map of Cornwall due to the activities of Rick Stein, who has one of his restaurants by the harbour. Rock and Polzeath are particularly expensive coastal locations, with many properties valued in the millions and attracting buyers from London and the South East.
Services We Provide
Hocking Associates offer two main services; a Building Condition Survey (not to be confused with the RICS Condition Report) and a Full Building Survey, although we also provide many other residential property services. Drawing from a wealth of experience surveying everything from cottages to country manors throughout Padstow and the surrounding area, we offer professional, friendly advice.
Building Condition Survey (not to be confused with the RICS Condition Report) – A thorough report detailing the condition of all visible and accessible elements of the property. Both the interior and exterior of the property are inspected and advice provided as to the extent of any defects identified and works required.
Full Building Survey – A more detailed version of the Building Condition Survey, the Full Building Survey comments in greater detail on those aspects inspected.
