The Nottingham has chosen Gateway as its panel manager to look after all valuations.
From March 2010, The Nottingham will be outsourcing its entire professional services department to Gateway.
Gateway manages a nationwide network of affiliated firms, alongside its large in-house employed surveyor workforce, Sonas Surveyors.
Alison Williams at The Nottingham, says: “The management of the valuation process is crucial to our business and we looked carefully at all leading providers in the market. We were particularly impressed with Gateway’s commitment to risk management throughout their business supported by the group professional indemnity cover they offer for all of their individual firms. The senior management are experienced panel managers who focus on both service and quality.”
Marcus Radcliffe, managing director at Gateway, says:“We’re delighted to be working with The Nottingham, one of the UK’s biggest and most respected building societies. We’ve worked hard to build our business over recent years and have enjoyed an exceptional period of growth. We have never lost our focus on the service we offer our clients and it is for this reason that we believe we are winning new accounts and expanding our range of services”
