Welcome to DowlingDodd Chartered Surveyors

DowlingDodd Chartered Surveyors was established in 1981 and quickly grew to become one of the most respected professional practices in the County centrally based in our Truro office.

Julian Crosby and Paul Davison have a wealth of knowledge with over fifty years combined experience in the local market.

We specialise in surveying and valuing across the entire spectrum of the housing stock in Cornwall ranging from small cottages and modern bungalows to large country homes and waterside properties.

We also survey commercial properties and prepare Schedules of Condition.

We are not only able to provide advice on condition and repair but also provide valuations for sale, purchase, estate planning and disputes.

Unique to Cornwall and parts of Devon we also specialise in Mundic Block testing. Graham Dodd, one of the founding partners was instrumental in drafting the RICS Guidance notes in the 1990s and recently Julian Crosby sat on the RICS Steering Committee to review the existing Guidance which resulted in the revised Guidance Notes.

The company also specialises in valuation work for a number of major institutions including Lloyds Bank plc, NatWest Bank plc, RBS and Handelsbanken plc as well as niche lenders and private clients and we also receive instructions from many of the county’s leading Solicitors and Accountants.

We have now been in business over 30 years, with a City centre office in Truro which enables us to cover the whole of the county.

Our aim has always been and continues to be the provision of the highest standard of independent professional advice and services to private and corporate clients across the commercial and residential market.
