Sesame launches valuation portal

The service, available to Sesame and PMS members, enables users to receive email updates which includes the date and time the job has been booked and when the report has been completed and dispatched to the customer.

Ian Fergusson, chief surveyor at SBVS, said: “We are continually looking to enhance our service to meet the increasing demand for private surveys.

"Our new online solution makes the whole process simpler and more efficient for advisers. It enables them to offer a better service to their customers and keeps them updated every step of the way."

Kieran Hayes of Hayes Finance Ltd said: “I have already found the service offered by SBVS to be a useful add-on to offer my clients if they require a Homebuyer's report or structural report.

"This new service will mean that, from instruction, clients are contacted within 24 hours with a quote and date for an appointment. Given the improvements to the service we expect feedback from clients to be positive.”
