Mr Mills, Shottenden

Mr Mills was in the process of buying a new home just outside of Canterbury, Kent, when he contacted us in December 2016. He had found the perfect property for his investment – a Grade II listed manor with a large barn conversion, both finished to an excellent contemporary standard.

As he was still waiting for the sale of his existing home to complete, Mr Mills needed a bridging loan to secure his new purchase. In order to obtain the loan, Mr Mills asked Daily Move to carry out a RICS Property Valuation Report on both buildings and estate.

Most Valuation Reports only need to contain the market value of the surveyed property. However, due to the nature of his purchase, the company providing Mr Mills’ bridging loan required a more detailed valuation, laid out in a specific format. In this instance, one of our highly-experienced surveyors was able to inspect the entire site and provide a market value, rental value and an overall idea of current market conditions to indicate the suitability of Mr Mills’ investment.

The survey and report were completed within 10 days, giving Mr Mills plenty of time to secure his loan. So impressed by the quality of our service, Mr Mills later referred another client to us, so that we could produce a report in the same style for their own property purchase. Mr Mills is now settled into his new home in Shottenden, Kent.
