Why Brown&Co Barfords?

Experience Expertise and Local Knowledge

As surveyors, agents and valuers working actively in the local market, we are perfectly placed to comment on market value, in the context of prevailing market conditions and the demand for and supply of commercial land and buildings. This allows us to analyse market trends and accurately advise clients on value. Our valuations will fully accord with the requirements of the RICS Red Book. Our valuations will identify and recognise development potential and the scope for added value by change of use on existing buildings.

RICS Valuer Registration Scheme

As part of its commitment to protect the public interest and continually raise standards, in 2010, the RICS launched the RICS Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme assures the quality of valuations and raises the credibility of registered valuers. It allows clients to identify truly competent valuers in the field. The scheme raises consumer confidence in the delivery of valuation advice to the highest professional standard. This is achieved through an established register of valuers in RICS regulated firms and a system of regulatory monitoring.

Brown&Co Barfords Valuers

We have three registered valuers under the RICS scheme – Sheila Smyth, Phil Halmshaw and Martin Olley.

The Importance of Local Knowledge

Capital and rental values are primarily assessed by reference to comparable transactions. Our depth of local knowledge and firsthand experience of market conditions is essential to ensure optimum outcome.
