Lea Hough Boost Survey and Valuation Team With New Appointment

Lea Hough has boosted its Survey and Valuation team with the appointment of James Roberts. James, who has a number of years’ experience in the field of property valuations, and whose prior experience includes dealing with both residential and commercial property, joins the team as a Surveyor.

In his new position, James will undertake property inspections and assist with the preparation of Valuation Reports, RICS Homebuyer Reports, and Building Survey Reports for a variety of clients. Alongside this, James’ role will also encompass Property Management work – undertaking Property Management services on behalf of landlords including collecting rents, periodic management inspections, identifying defects, arrangements for repairs, tenancy renewals, tenant vetting, and interviewing.

James has a strong knowledge of the North West property market, having worked across Manchester, Chorley and East Lancashire for a number of years.

In joining Lea Hough, James will begin working towards becoming a RICS Registered Valuer and Associate member of the RICS – following Lea Hough’s structured training programme that has been approved by the RICS. James is also on track to attain a BTEC Level 4 in Residential Letting and Management, which he has been working towards alongside full-time employment in his previous role.

Commenting on joining the firm, James said:

“I was looking for a firm that could help me take my career to the next level – and Lea Hough fit the bill. Their training programme has received great feedback from those that have already been through it, and the fact that I will be able to learn from the experience of other team-members will help me towards my goal of becoming Chartered.

“The fact that I’ve been given a varied role is also a bonus – allowing me to further develop my skills in valuations, surveys and property management.”

The appointment of James is the first of a number of key roles Lea Hough is looking to recruit for during 2019. For more information, visit www.leahough.co.uk

“We had a Schedule of Condition carried out on a Commercial Property. From vacant possession to our proposed completion date we were really tight on time. Gary managed to carry out the inspection and write a very thorough report in the time needed to ensure we hit our completion date. The price of the report was also extremely competitive. I would recommend Lea Hough to anyone looking for a Professional Surveyors with excellent service & communication at a competitive price.”
