Estate Agent Valuation

As part of the SDL Group, we have access to the CENTURY 21 UK network of estate agents, part of one of the world’s largest estate agency networks.


Our bespoke iPad software helps our network to be more profitable and risk averse, and we are committed to continued innovation.


Through our nationwide network of surveying firms and risk management professionals, our lenders can be sure of the quality and delivery of their valuations needs.


We don’t just view our lenders as clients – we view them as partners – and have been working alongside some of them since 1989.
