We undertake valuations that are prepared in accordance with the RICS Valuation - Professional Standards (January 2014), for secured lending for banks, building societies and financial institutions. We also carry out valuations for accounts, probate and taxation purposes, prepared on the same basis.

The commercial lending market continues to present the most challenging of times that most businesses and property valuers have experienced. In light of such difficult conditions, the role of the valuer and the advice provided is arguably more important than ever.

At Mason Owen, we have always adopted an 'open door' policy in our commitment to provide the best possible valuation advice to our clients. Our panel status with the majority of the UK and high street banks and most other mainstream lenders is testimony to the strength of our reputation in this most technical of professional fields.
