Bath is one of the South West's most beautiful cities, characterised by buildings such as Bath's Royal Crescent.
Named after the Roman Baths, the city is a wonderous site to survey. The City of Bath became a World Heritage Site in 1987.
In the Times 2015 survey of the best places to live in the UK, Bath came first as best for family and second for safest city.

Bath Building Surveyors, the trading name of Right Surveyors Wilts and East Somerset Ltd, are professional, independent surveyors fully regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

Buying any building without a survey is a risk. By using the services of professional building surveyors you are safeguarding your investment.

"Our focus is on delivering a cost-effective service - providing you with comprehensive detail and advice, for less."
The House Purchase Survey is our most popular survey and suitable for most property buyers. It provides a more concise and digestible version of the Full Building Survey at a lower cost.
By focusing on what you need to know, the report gives you the information to make a reasoned and informed decision on whether to go ahead with a purchase. Like the HomeBuyer Report, it covers matters directly affecting the property’s value but also highlights problems that might affect your day-to-day living experience and guides you on maintenance requirements.
The report covers all of the features of the Full Building Survey including matters like structural movement, ventilation, damp, timber joinery etc. By not going into as much detail as the full survey, The House Purchase Survey provides a cost-effective alternative for any type of property - whether commercial or residential, large or small.
Our RICS Building Survey includes a comprehensive inspection of the property and gives you a detailed report tailored to your specific requirements. The bespoke and thorough report gives you a complete overview of the property and its condition and, unlike most surveyors in Bath, we deliver our reports from a Chartered Building Surveyor - which gives you the advice of a real specialist.
The RICS Building Survey makes provisions for specially undertaken structural inspections. An in depth assessment is made of specific problems with guidance on how to deal with them and advice as to the likely costs involved.
Only qualified and independent building surveyors can satisfactorily undertake an RICS Building Survey. It requires a professional with many years of experience in diagnosing and predicting structural and building problems of all kinds. Our expertise in finding defects early could save you money on civil action and costly future repairs.
Perhaps you don't quite have the funds for a full survey or you wish to complete your purchase quickly, fear not, our Chartered Surveyor Paul can offer personal Verbal Acquisition Advice. To save money on a full written report, he will undertake a full property inspection as if making a written building survey and report back to you that day, by telephone or in person. You can still get all the information you need, and at the lowest possible price.
Our dedication to the highest quality of service has made us one of the most popular firm of Building Surveyors in Bath. See our testimonials page for details.

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!"
