Gowland White is a leading independent firm of Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents based on Teesside. Our professional team of experts has been trusted by thousands of clients since 1988. Whether you are a buyer, seller, landlord or tenant we offer the very best service, with property sector gold awards to prove it.
Experience and Trust
Our Property Consultants offer more than just expertise, being friendly and trusted by our clients. If you instruct us to act for you, we’ll make a point of getting to know you well, so that we can understand your plans and give you the best possible advice, communication and outstanding service.
We place the highest priority on outstanding service and communication but you don't have to just take our word for it; we are proud to have been twice voted the 'Best North East Estate Agent' at the ESTAS awards and won 'Best Yarm Estate Agent' at the British Property Awards.
If you need a property survey, we offer inspections by an experienced Chartered Surveyor to help with your buying decision.
And as with all of our departments, we work to the strictest codes of practice, regulated by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
We provide a full range of Property Valuations, including home purchase, mortgage, matrimonial, taxation, insurance, probate and retrospective valuations.
If you're buying a home that looks in reasonable condition and is not particularly old or run down, a HomeBuyer Report is ideal. It is a more in-depth survey than a mortgage valuation, but is still an economical way of learning about a property's condition and value, providing you with:
An opinion of the property's general condition, current market value and future sale prospects
Identification of any items which require attention or may affect the value
A list of matters with possible legal implications which should be referred to your solicitor
Advice on maintenance and safety issues
Details of matters to be investigated further or acted upon prior to purchase
Buyers are often confused about their lender's valuation. Many still believe their valuation is a survey and is being prepared for their benefit. Increasingly, lenders take a risk-based approach and might well use an automated valuation model which can result in nobody physically visiting the property.
RICS research found that on average homebuyers spent £5,750 on unforeseen repairs when they moved into their new home. The vast majority will have relied on the lender's valuation only.
The RICS have put together a short film explaining how a survey from an RICS qualified professional will ensure you know as much as possible about the condition of the property before you commit to buying.
