Position: Consultant and Auctioneer
Tel: 01484 558205
I am a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, having qualified in 1979 from Shirecliffe College, Sheffield. I joined Eddisons in 1980 and was principally involved in the sale and valuation of residential properties, principally preparing mortgage valuations for high street lenders. I moved to Bramleys in 1983 and became a full equity partner in 1990. I subsequently retired from being an equity partner on 1 April 2021 and now act as a Consultant. I am currently the Head of the Professional Services section which is involved in carrying out surveys and valuations of principally residential properties on behalf of both private and corporate clients.
I also act as an auctioneer and have conducted auction sales since 1981. Bramleys hold approximately 4/5 property auctions annually and approximately 8/9 auctions of antiques and effects also on an annual basis. I am currently a member of the RICS Residential Valuation Faculty. I am an RICS Registered Valuer.
Bramleys is a Limited Liability Partnership trading from offices within Huddersfield, Halifax, Mirfield, Heckmondwike and Elland comprising 5 partners and employing approximately 70 personnel. Bramleys was established in 1959 and is involved in residential and commercial estate agency, property management, professional services, auctions and operates within a geographical area covering Huddersfield, Halifax, Bradford, Leeds, Wakefield, Barnsley and Sheffield.
I confirm that I am qualified to act as an independent expert having sufficient professional experience in respect of carrying out surveys and valuations of residential properties within all the above localities. Bramleys' estate agency department sell in excess of 700/750 houses per year and the surveying and valuation division carry out surveys and valuations on average in excess of 2,500 properties per year and, therefore, have an excellent bank of comparable evidence and local knowledge within the West and South Yorkshire areas.
