Philip Martin can provide a wide range of advice and services such as professional valuations for probate, insurance, taxation, divorce and litigation, as well as general advice on planning, development potential and legal matters. We are not, however, building surveyors and are unable to carry out structural surveys etc.
A formal probate valuation is carried out by one of our chartered surveyors (RICS) and is commonly required for probate. A formal valuation can only be conducted by a Chartered Surveyor who is also a Registered Valuer to ensure that they take into account all features and issues relating to a particular property. After a valuation, the client receives a written report detailing the value of the property and a fee is charged for this service. Valuations are required when a definitive value is needed. Reasons for this include a property settlement, obtaining finance from a lending institution or establishing the value of a deceased estate. A Court may also order that a valuation be obtained as part of the process of resolving a dispute.
Philip Martin and Steven Jenkin are both members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. By appointing an RICS Registered Valuer, you can be confident that you are working with regulated and qualified professionals who:
- Adhere to the 'Red Book' valuation standards
- Are committed to openness and transparency
- Are experts in their field, delivering credible and high-quality reports
Valuer Registration is our quality assurance mechanism that monitors all registered RICS members who carry out 'Red Book' valuations and ensures consistent standards.
Valuer Registration aims to ensure the quality of valuations, raise the credibility of valuers and provide clients with a clearly identifiable designation of international standards, quality and the consistent application of 'Red Book' standards. We believe that a thriving and strong profession, operating under a single global standard and modern regulation system, is good for professionals, clients and society.

Having recently Sold my house with Philip Martin Estate Agents I cannot praise the whole experience enough. From the first telephone conversation to the last it has been impressive. Professional, Polite, Guiding, Encouraging. I do need to mention Jack Loader, no question or query was too much trouble, making the selling process a pleasure.

James and his team handled a complex sale (house and adjacent land owned by a third party) with great professionalism and innovation and determination to secure our sale. He was also cognisant of our time scales in that we had not secured an onward purchase or rental property. James is an extremely approachable agent who always worked with us to successfully achieve our goals and certainly went ‘the extra mile’ when required. We cannot recommend him highly enough.
Cannot recommend enough! We had a particularly complicated and problematic experience trying to sell a property recently and we were so(!) lucky we had Sean alongside us to guide and support. Sean was patient, efficient and super supportive throughout the entire process. I am genuinely confident we would not have been able to do it without him! Thank you as well to Aaron, I know he did a lot of work on this one too! You two are the best and we are so thankful for all your hard work getting this one across the line! I highly recommend and look forward to hopefully working with you both again.
Very efficient and personable service helped us find a perfect place. Trustworthy and effective. Thank you.
Dear Jack, I have moved into my new bungalow and it is very nice. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your efforts on my behalf. You have behaved rapidly and helpfully to assist me with all of the problems that arose for me in one of several difficult projects at once. Thank you very much.
