Trowbridge is derived from "Tree Bridge", the first bridge over the River Bliss. Many beautiful buildings form its breathtaking character.
Trowbridge appeared in the Domesday Book following William the Conquerer's survey of England.
Trowbridge Surveyors — the local trading name of Right Surveyors Wilts and East Somerset Ltd — is an RICS regulated firm of building surveyors, who specialise in pre-purchase surveys and specialist building surveys for property buyers and owners. We can offer a myriad of different surveys and defect analysis reports from qualified, experienced Building Surveyors, all of whom take pride in their work.
Unlike many general practice surveyors - the surveying equivalent of a 'jack of all trades' - we provide our services through experienced, professional, and fully qualified specialist building surveyors whose training and career experience lies in identifying structural defects and diagnosing all hidden problems.
In order to offer you a competitive price, we make sure you get far greater value for money and the service of a professional who is happy to deal with you personally and guide you through the whole process, step-by-step.
If you are purchasing a property in or close to Trowbridge, instructing building surveyors to work on your behalf is always advisable. Building surveyors can guide you on all property aspects of the purchase, from structural stability to defects, and may even be able to help to negotiate a better price.
Our local professional Chartered Building Surveyor Paul Keegan leads Trowbridge Surveyors as part of Right Surveyors Wilts and East Somerset Ltd and undertakes instructions for both private and commercial clients.
Originally from Scotland, Paul has spent the last 20 years working and living in Wessex, resulting in a firm grasp of local property styles, building types and market conditions.
"Our focus is on delivering a cost-effective service - providing you with comprehensive detail and advice, for less than you might think."
The House Purchase Survey takes features from the Full Building Survey, and reduces it to a more concise, manageable document for a lower price. It provides an excellent 'middle ground' and is the most suitable survey for most property purchasers.
This report is designed to assist a property buyer to make a reasoned and informed judgement on whether or not to proceed with a purchase. Its purpose is to report not just on matters which affect the property's value, similar to the HomeBuyer's Survey, but also on defects which will affect the internal living environment and on maintenance considerations.
The subheadings covered mirror the Full Building Survey (including matters like structural movement, ventilation, damp, timber joinery etc.) and the main difference between the two lies in the level of detail. As such, it is suitable for any type of property - large or small, residential or commercial.
Building surveys involve a detailed inspection of the property and the report is designed to address the specific needs and interests of the client, whilst providing a comprehensive overview of the property and its features. In this way, it is bespoke and thorough - the top level service from Chartered Building Surveyors designed by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
A Full Building Survey can include arrangements for specialist tests, like structural calculations or drainage assessments. Guidance and detailed comment is given on individual defects and costings can be included.
This Survey must be carried out by qualified, experienced and independent Chartered Building Surveyors, who is a specific expert in diagnosing and predicting structure and building defects, however large or small. Our expertise in finding defects early could save you thousands of pounds in future repair bills or possible civil action.
If you're on a tight budget, our Chartered Surveyor Paul can offer Verbal Acquisition Advice. Instead of paying the price of a full written report, for a reduced fee Paul will attend the site, make the investigations he would usually make for a written building survey and report directly to you that day - either by telephone or face-to-face. You save money, but still get the information you need.
Our focus on providing a high quality surveying service has resulted in many satisfied clients across Trowbridge. See more on our testimonials page.

When you buy, lease or improve a commercial property, HMRC allows you to use some of that expenditure to reduce tax.
Our clients often obtain a tax benefit which could exceed 10% of the property purchase price; often in the hundreds of thousands.
"Thank you for your prompt service, could not have asked or expected more. I note your comments and in an ideal world everything would have been 'one'. Will not hesitate to recommend you, and will make a point of letting the estate agent know."
"Once again many thanks for an excellent survey – far better than the gentleman in Norwich who we used over here last year who failed to inspect one of the three roof spaces and another in Cambs who didn’t even get up into the loft space!"
