Lea Hough’s audit success!

Our Survey and Valuation Team this week received a visit from an auditor on behalf of a longstanding client who instructs us to undertake Valuation Surveys.

The regular client is a Panel Manager who acts nationwide on behalf of various well known mortgage lenders.

During the thorough audit, Lea Hough’s processes and documentation were reviewed against the client’s criteria and lenders’ requirements. The audit covered issues such as: the quality of our valuation reports, comparable evidence of market valuations, detailed site notes, health and safety, financial diligence, equipment checks, policies and procedures etc.

The overall aims of the audit are to ensure that high quality standards of report writing are being maintained and to ensure that the highest levels of customer service are delivered. The audit also ensures that we achieve a high level of consistency amongst our Chartered RICS Valuation Surveyors and RICS Registered Valuers.

We are pleased to confirm that we scored 100% in the audit!

This secures our position on this panel and we look forward to continuing to work with our key client.

"I have read your report again and I appreciate the level of detail and the effort you have gone to in surveying the property - thank you. You’re looking at properties every day and you know what you’re looking for – so you’ve seen things that I would never have spotted. You have opened my eyes on numerous defects on this property and am seriously thinking about leaving the idea of buying. The report was money wells spent!"
