Appraisers UK Ltd is managed by Simon Jago and Peter Foulds. 

Simon was fundamental to the setup of the business in 2012, having had joint responsibility for the overall running of the business, including the management of the Client Liaison, Information Technology and Operational departments, since that time.

Peter joined the company in 2015 having spent 16 years working for a leading BTL Lender. Since joining Appraisers UK Pete has played a key part in the RICS Guidance on the Valuation of Buy to Let and HMO property and in developing the technical and audit side for the business.

The Client Services team is led by Jackie Turrell who has worked in surveyor panel management for 15 years. Jackie is assisted by Jenny Scott and Yvonne Wiltshire (surveyor liaison) as well as Mandy Wesker (quality control) who works closely with the three external Chartered Surveyor auditors.

The Appraisers UK team has the knack of finding the right, well experienced local surveyors for the task in hand. Our team has worked with surveyors we have known for many years as well creating new connections with professional people who are ‘on top of their game’.

This invaluable insight helps us maintain the high level of accuracy and quality of work required by our clients. However, this is not achieved without ensuring surveyors are properly remunerated.

It would be hypocritical to advocate the industry mantra of “Treating Customers Fairly” only to be complicit in seeing surveyors only receive a disappointing fraction of the fee paid by the client. Therefore, Appraisers UK ensures its management costs are minimised so that they never exceed 15% of the fee. This margin is necessary to provide for case management, keeping you, the client, informed, ensuring the surveyor complies with a quality control regime (which we back up with an on-going auditing and review programme), checking the surveyor is covered by professional indemnity insurance when the case is commissioned, management of the payment of the surveyor, the collecting of fees from clients and getting feedback from clients to endorse surveyors’ top of their game aspirations. If cost is the client’s sole criterion, then cheaper surveying services can probably be readily found on other websites.

The Appraisers UK team seeks to exceed expectations by ensuring the clear communication of competent advice in a timely fashion.

The Appraisers UK team does not subscribe to:

            the exploitation of the client’s lack of industry knowledge,

            insider deals to pass on knowledge or data for gain,

            negative selling by disparaging competing surveyors,

            discrimination on the grounds of age, race, gender or religion,

but we do:

            discriminate on the grounds of knowledge and performance, 

            seek to maximise surveyors' and our own communication skills,

            try to ensure surveyors achieve their potential, 

            harness technology to enhance but not to replace human contact  

 We aspire to only work with fully satisfied clients.
