With instructions received to provide a Valuation Report for Bank lending purposes, Urquhart Opticians Ltd were seeking to acquire the premises for potential purchase.    

Graham + Sibbald Senior Surveyor, Rosie, attended the property to undertake the inspection. She discussed her finding with the Marketing Agent and thereafter provided a full Valuation Report.  

Key Challenges

The main challenges faced stemmed from liaising with the Marketing Agent and awaiting a copy of the Deed of Condition in relation to the car parking available to the rear of the property. 


The premises were on the market for approximately 8 to 9 weeks as at the date of sale and there was interest from other parties at the proposed acquisition price.  

The Client was able to successfully purchase the premises and are now in the process of undertaking a series of refurbishment works.   

Key Message

Good communication and prompt production of the valuation report in line with Client requirements allowed for a timely completion of the project and property sale.

“Having worked with Graham + Sibbald on a number of occasions, we required a prompt valuation of the property at Miller Road. Having identified that the property was right for our needs as a future Opticians practice, we needed a surveyor that understood our requirements and one that could undertake the work in a confidential and timely manner. Rosie and the team at Graham + Sibbald achieved this, and maintained positive and proactive communication throughout.” - Peter Telfer, Managing Director, Urquhart Opticians
