About Penzance


Independent Chartered Surveyors in Penzance


Penzance is well known for its artists and the adjoined fishing village of Newlyn, as well as being the last stop on the main railway line from Paddington. Penzance has good links to the Scilly Isles via the Scillonian Ferry, making it a popular tourist destination. Nearby and beyond Penzance are the quaint seaside villages of Mousehole and Paul. Roads from Penzance lead down to Lands End and Sennen, as well as the mining villages of St Just and Pendeen.

With large areas of Penzance classed as ‘conservation areas’, many Georgian and Regency buildings are still present throughout the town. With mild climates, clean air and a colourful collection of sub-tropical plants shown in the Morrab Gardens, Penzance is a popular seaside town that has done much to improve its tourism in the past few decades.


Services We Provide


As an experienced team of surveyors, we have a dedication to ensuring complete client satisfaction in all property-related services we provide.  For those clients purchasing a property, we offer the Building Survey Report (Level 3), designed to ensure that clients have all the information they need when considering their purchase.


Building Survey Report (Level 3) A comprehensive, detailed report of the condition of the property which aims to identify any major defects and items of future expenditure. Looking at all visible and accessible elements of the property, any defects found will be reported upon and photographed wherever possible. 


Hocking Associates also provides a number of additional property-related services for clients across Penzance and the surrounding areas, including Expert Witness Reports, Property Refurbishment Advice, Valuation Reports, Schedules of Condition and more.
