Mortgage & Loan Security

We assure a prompt inspection and a report is sent by emailed PDF and/or a posted hard-copy. The style and content of the report can be tailored to the client’s individual requirements. Consideration is always given to the structural condition of the property offered as security and if required our reports give opinions of the value after completion of recommended essential works & repairs in addition to the value of the property in its current state. A report will also confirm that the property occupies the land as described on the cadastral plan and point out potential problems that the client’s lawyers should investigate such as apparent easements and rights of way.
