We have the largest international team of Chartered Surveyors and RICS Registered Valuers dedicated to our specialist markets: hotels, care, childcare, leisure, medical and retail.
Each year our team completes valuations of thousands of properties across the UK and Europe. Working closely with our transactional colleagues, who sell around 1,000 businesses each year, we are able to draw on current market sentiment and comparable evidence.
With access to comprehensive market data, our valuers are in a unique position to benchmark both the business performance and property value ensuring their reports and professional advice is always well researched and well informed. In the latest financial year, our team has valued or advised on c£10bn of property, making us one of the most active valuers in our markets. This has been across the whole spectrum from single properties through to inspecting portfolios in excess of 2,000 properties.
We are recognised as leading valuers by all the high street banks including Bank of Scotland, Barclays, Clydesdale, HSBC, Lloyds, NatWest, RBS, Santander and Yorkshire Bank as well as most of the other specialist lending institutions. In addition, we work with many of the large European banks and a number of North American and global financial institutions. Much of the work we undertake is for loan security, accounts and balance sheet, acquisition, disposal, dispute resolution, statutory compensation and taxation purposes.
With valuers located in each of our offices across the UK, Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Poland, Spain and Sweden, we can provide local knowledge on an international scale, and respond effectively to widespread portfolio valuations as well as individual local projects.
