Top tips for a Trowbridge Home Buyers Survey


Trowbridge is a large market town in Wiltshire and its history stretches back to at least the 10th century.

Its town centre is full of 18th century buildings erected by wealthy clothiers. Architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner famously described the town centre as a 'row of palaces'. Some of those palatial 18th century exteriors are facades covering earlier 16th-17th century houses.

There are also a number of Victorian period survivals of various sizes. The town also has much housing constructed in the 20th century and up to the present date, both municipal and private.

New build developments include the semi-detached houses in Elmhurst Gardens, the detached houses around Hilperton and flats in Roundstone Mews, near the town's centre.

Properties in Trowbridge built in the close vicinity of the River Biss and Paxcroft Brook, in streets such as Ashton Road and Old Farm Road, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
Some properties in Trowbridge may be located in an area which is subject to a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

A recent local authority search for a property in Market Place, Melksham revealed that it was within a CIL area.

The Community Infrastructure Levy is a planning charge, introduced by the Planning Act 2008 as a tool for local authorities in England and Wales to help deliver infrastructure to support the development of their area. It came into force on 6 April 2010 through the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010. Development may be liable for a charge under the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), if your local planning authority has chosen to set a charge in its area.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Trowbridge area mainly centre around the A350, affecting nearby streets such as West Ashton Road and Common Hill.

WiltshireWiltshire is a county in South West England and its county town is Trowbridge. It has high downland and wide valleys and is arguably most notable for the Stonehenge and Avebury ancient stone circles found on Salisbury Plain. It also contains a number of well known country houses including Longleat and Stourhead. The landlocked county borders Dorset, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Berkshire.

Originally Wiltshire's county town was Wilton but the county council is now based in Trowbridge. Salisbury is the county's only city although Swindon, which has five times as many people as Salisbury (around 210,000), is its most populated built-up area.

The M4 is the one motorway going through the county and the main transport hub is Swindon, which has regular direct trains to London Paddington and other major conurbations. The nearest major airport is Southampton.

There are three universities in Wiltshire, all located in Swindon. These are; Cranfield University, a postgraduate-only institution, which has strong links with industry and the business world; the University of the West of England and the University of Bath in Swindon.

Wiltshire has many attractions, some of which are very quirky, including Burlington, a huge nuclear bunker which can accommodate 4,000 people, Longleat Safari Park, the Kennet & Avon Canal Museum in Devizes, the Swindon and Cricklade Railway and Salisbury Cathedral.

Swindon also hosts the Magic Roundabout, which has been voted the UK's scariest road junction.

What’s the difference between a HomeBuyer Report and a Building Survey?

When it comes to property surveys for home buyers there are two main choices.

The first is the RICS HomeBuyer Report; this survey is specifically designed for post-1950s flats/bungalows/maisonettes or houses of standard construction. The report uses a 'traffic light' format to indicate the opinion of the surveyor on the various aspects of the building under consideration. The HomeBuyer Report includes a current market valuation as standard which can be used to compare with your property's agreed asking price.

The second option is the RICS Building Survey; this survey is reserved for older and larger properties that may have had the original fabric of the property altered or have unique features (i.e. a thatched roof). It is the most detailed visual inspection that can be carried out.

While it doesn’t include the property valuation that comes as standard with a HomeBuyer Report, many surveyors will often include in it an estimate of the cost of works for maintenance or upgrades to help with repairs or renovation to the property.
