As a buyer, having an agreement in principle in place before a viewing will stand you in better stead when negotiating with the vendor. We have connections to established mortgage brokers who can compare the market for you, offering third party advice on what product would be best for you depending on your personal circumstances.

We work with several local, qualified and experienced surveyors who offer a range of different survey types to suit different needs – simply ask a member of our team for more details.
