Our story

Torus was founded in 2019 by Chartered Surveyor Robert Armstrong, who had previously worked for a number of large national surveying companies, most recently as Legal and General’s Staff Surveyor covering Manchester & Cheshire.

Within the last 10 years, large corporate firms of surveyors have increasingly concentrated their resources on looking after their larger corporate clients such as mortgage lenders. Robert noticed an increasing gap in the market developing as many private individuals were finding it increasingly hard to obtain good quality independent residential property advice at an affordable price.

Torus Chartered Surveyors was designed to provide this service to private individuals as opposed to big companies. We are an independent firm of Chartered Surveyors based in Altrincham, where we pride ourselves on proving clients with a professional, comprehensive and friendly service in helping people navigate their way in the property market, whether it’s for buying, selling or owning.

All Surveyors within the company are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. With such vast knowledge and experience, we offer a wide range of surveyor services appropriate to your individual needs, including:

Which is the right survey for me?

Buying a home is one of the most expensive financial decision you will ever make and it can be a daunting prospect, especially if you’re a first-time buyer. Before you purchase your new home, it is essential you obtain your own independent advice as to the condition and value of the property.

A mortgage valuation is merely designed to protect your lender’s interests. It is not intended to be relied upon by you. Increasingly large lenders are relying on computer based Automated Valuation Models (AVMs), a surveyor may not even inspect the property. If they do, many defects which you would be critical to your decision are inconsequential to your lender and therefore would not be covered in a typical Valuation Report.

As home survey specialists, Torus Chartered Surveyors can provide you with all the information you need, offering clear, honest and direct advice on legal property matters, inspections, any building costs on repair works, as well as opportunities of home improvement.
