    Residential Valuations and Surveys

    Walker Singleton Ltd are an established Chartered Surveyors with its head office located in Halifax, West Yorkshire with satellite offices located in Huddersfield, Bradford and Queensbury. Our residential surveyor is a member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and is a Registered Valuer with 30 years experience in the design, inspection and surveying of residential buildings.


    Why obtain a survey?

    You are about to make an important financial decision. Relying on luck may not be the best decision. A survey by a Chartered Survey will provide you with sound advice on your investment.

    The Council of Mortgage Lenders and the Building Societies Association advise you to get a survey before you buy, and not just to rely on a valuation. A valuation is not a survey.

    We provide the following surveys.

    • Valuation

    • RICS Homebuyers Report

    • Building Survey

    Valuation

    This shouldn't be confused with a survey. It is an open market value of the property based on market condition, quality of the property and is based on similar local properties sold recently where possible.

    RICS Homebuyers report

    Shows the condition of the property and offers guidance to legal advisors and highlights any urgent defects. It is aimed at conventional properties and newer homes. It also includes a market valuation and insurance rebuild costs. It also includes advice on defects that may affect the value of the property with repairs, and ongoing maintenance advice.

    Building Survey

    Essential for larger or older properties, or if you're planning major works. The most comprehensive report provides you with an in-depth analysis of the property's condition and includes advice on defects, repairs and maintenance options. Although it does not include a valuation or rebuilding cost, this can be added if requested.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      will definitely recommend Walker Singleton

      You and Steve are both doing a great job. I am extremely pleased with the level of service and will definitely recommend Walker singleton to family and friends.

      Mrs R Fiaz 11/03/15 

    • Seller Testimonial

      A great experience from start to end

      A great experience from start to end. I have sold two properties with Walker Singleton in the last few months and compared to experiences with other agents in the recent past there really is no compare. Lisa was excellent, kept me informed at all times and when things became a little difficult with solicitors she navigated the challenges with complete calm. I really felt that Lisa was on top of the sale at all times right down to the smallest of details. Knowing what is going on and when things are happening is key for any vendor and Lisa kept me completely up to speed. Don't bother looking elsewhere, especially with the largest in the market. They lose interest very quickly and make what is already a potentially stressful experience even worse. Not at all my experience with Walker Singleton.

      Mr P Biddulph 29/05/2015

      I have nothing but praise for the service

      I have nothing but praise for the service I received whilst selling my parents house through Walker Singleton. From day one, the initial house viewing, through to handing over the keys, they acted in a kind and friendly manner and through their professionalism I received an acceptable offer within a week. I would have no problem recommending Walker Singleton to anyone looking to buy a property.

      Mrs L Dyson 08/06/2015

      From valuation to completion everything was done on time. Frequent calls to update me on progress of the sale were welcome also!!

      Mr M Needham 19/07/2015

    • Seller Testimonial

      I would 100 percent recommend Walker Singleton

      I sold my property with walker singleton. From my first contact with Steve who came to value my house to Lisa phoning with viewing for my house. I was able to sell my house for the full asking price within a week. The help and support I received from Lisa at walker singleton was second to none. I would 100 percent recommend walker singleton to sell your house. I received regular progress update as the house was being sold. Lisa was always at the end of the phone to answer any queries I had and had a wealth of knowledge of what to expect. I am extremely happy with the service I received and cannot thank them enough.

      Mr & Mrs N Brady 03/08/2015

    • Seller Testimonial

      I couldn't recommend them enough

      What can I say... such a fantastic, efficient and stress-free process from start to finish.

      From the initial contact with Ben, the first visit by Steve, to the ongoing support from Lisa, the whole experience has been unbelievably straightforward. All the staff are motivated, pro-active and more importantly, reliable. Using Walker Singleton has definitely reaffirmed my belief to use an independent agent as opposed to a corporate firm and I couldn't recommend them enough.

      It was refreshing not to have to ring via a switchboard, secretary, or faceless contact centre. The person dealing with the property knew exactly what stage we were at and the office in Huddersfield is great for access if you need to pop in. Definitely an agent I will be using again.


      Mr Hutchinson 15/10/15

    • Seller Testimonial

      From start to finish they have been superb

      If you're thinking of buying or selling a property then think no further than Walker Singleton. From start to finish they have been superb. Everyone we spoke to was very helpful and calls were always returned. At the outset, Steve came to value property. He is very genuine and the photographs he took were outstanding and highlighted the key selling points of the property. From then on, Lisa took control and nothing was too much trouble. We were selling my mother in laws property and if we were not available for viewings they made sure she was not on her own. Lisa is friendly and easy to talk to, respectful to our requirements and provided regular updates on perspective buyers. Once a buyer was found there were regular updates from all parties and the solicitors to make sure that things happened. If it wasn't for Lisa then we may still be waiting. She is a credit to Walker Singleton. So, thank you for everything you've done. Your involvement has been outstanding and we would not hesitate in recommending Walker Singleton to anyone.
