Video Viewings and Valuations

Covid Lockdown Statement – January 2021

Following the recent Covid announcement by the Government and in the interests of keeping our colleagues, clients, contacts and all of their families safe, we have decided to close our offices to the general public with effect from 9am, 5th January 2021.
Please note the business will continue to remain fully open and operational with staff working remotely from home using the same contact numbers and email addresses with full access to our systems. If you require a face-to-face Covid Safe meeting in our #Ripon or #Thirsk office, please contact us to make an appointment.
We have access to technology to provide video viewings and valuations of your property through the The Guild of Property Professionals, along with video calling to enable meetings and appointments to go ahead as required.
We ask in the first instance that a Virtual Video Viewing or call takes place prior to an actual in-person viewing. Following this, cash purchasers, First Time Buyers and applicants whose own property is Sold Subject to Contract are welcome to arrange a viewing of a property by contacting one of our offices.

Survey and Architecture appointments, face-to-face meetings, market appraisals or viewings will only take place where we have established that the parties involved are not suffering from any Coronavirus symptoms, have been advised to self-isolate or have travelled outside the UK to any country on the quarantine list. We ask you to consider whether your appointment with ourselves involves Essential Travel.
We are all facing a tough challenge over the coming weeks, the housing market remains open. We will continue to work hard and provide our full services, and hope that we will return to normal business as soon as practicably possible and it is safe to do so. We wish and hope everyone stays fit and healthy.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us. We can be contacted on our landlines, mobile numbers or by email …

Remember, always get a survey!

Remember…always get a survey!  Hidden defects such as dry or wet rot, structural movement or dampness are some of the common defects our team often find. These can often get worse over time if left untreated and could be an expensive problem to fix once you have moved in.

We can highlight specific defects that may not be immediately obvious when you have initially viewed your dream property. No two properties are the same, and the knowledge and experience of our surveyors can help to identify issues and provide you with the whole picture before making that commitment.

Here are a couple of recent photos of retrofitted damp treatment that could be doing more harm than good. These are quite obvious to the naked eye, however we helped identify future issues, make recommendations for action and provide the buyers with confidence of the complete picture of the property they were buying.

Traditional properties often don’t like modern interventions. Like the pictures shown, these often mask a symptom rather than diagnose the cause. All homes are subject to some defects during their lifespan, so before making that investment. Remember, always get a survey.

Contact us to discuss the property you are purchasing and we will discuss the right survey for you.
