    Trouble getting access for valuation

    Trouble getting access for valuation 6th Sep 17 at 12:17 PM
    Bank are wanting to do valuation on flat we have made offer on and have contacted the vendors.
    The vendors both work and can not be at the property until after 3pm - the valuation team only work until 3pm. The vendors want to be present. Any ideas on how we can get round this?

    You tell the vendors that if they want to vend they'll either need to take time off work or arrange for someone else to be there on their behalf.


    Though the valuers not working after 3pm sounds ridiculous.

    The vendors will need to back down as you are unlikely to get a company that large to bend their working pattern.

    The only alternative would be to see if the lender can panel it out to another surveyors, but that is probably unlikely.

    Either they want to sell or they don't.

    Tell them to grow up.

    No - it's a shared ownership. They are selling their % through the help-to-buy website.
