We are a trusted name in the Scottish Property market, act for all major Building Societies, Banks and Lending/Financial Institutions and are listed on all the major lenders’ panels. Our valuations, surveys and other reports are recognised and accepted by all key mortgage providers.
Everything we do is designed to add value. We’ll work closely with you to provide a bespoke solution to your specific needs. Our comprehensive range of services includes:
Mortgage Valuation Reports (Scheme 1)
These valuations provide the information a lender needs to decide how large a loan they will provide. They do not involve a detailed property inspection. We can provide these reports as a stand-alone document or to accompany a Home Report.
Homebuyer Surveys (Scheme 2)
These valuations involve a thorough property inspection that highlights any significant defects, problems or necessary repairs. The resulting standardised report provides the information a purchaser needs to make an informed judgement.
Building Surveys (Scheme 3)
Where a home is very old or damaged, a more detailed building survey may be required. If this is the case, our surveyor will closely examine the structure and condition of the building and provide an in-depth report.
Valuation for Other Purposes
We can provide residential property valuations for a wide range of specialist requirements such as for taxation, pre-sale or matrimonial purposes. We will advise on the appropriate type of valuations that will best meet your needs.
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)
An EPC gives information on how energy efficient a building is and sets out how this can be improved. An EPC must be provided when a property is sold or rented. We have specially trained surveyors in each of our offices who can prepare EPCs.
Our Residential Surveying team includes some of the most experienced valuers in the business. Our team are all highly trained and are registered to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Their expertise and experience means we can provide strategic consultancy advice on all aspects of residential property valuation.
Based in 15 regional offices, our teams provide a friendly service and local expertise. Our wide geographical reach allows us to respond quickly to our clients’ requests and gives us national coverage – something many of our competitors cannot match.
