AIR Group notes lack of valuers
AIR Group has noted a lack of valuers as a result of coronavirus and social distancing.
Looking to the lifetime mortgage application process, valuations and conveyancing involve face-to-face meetings and/or entering a client’s home.
As a result of the measures implemented by the government on social distance and isolation, many valuers will be unable to complete their job to the same capacity as before.
Stuart Wilson, chief executive of AIR Group, said: “AIR Group has the interests of its members at the top of our list and we’re in daily contact with lenders to get updates on how they, and the connected parties to this process, intend to navigate through this issue.
“There are innovative solutions being discussed and we expect to be able to provide members with some good news on this over the course of the next few days.
“We will communicate again with members on these points, including how we are moving forward with them, shortly and we are urging members to get in touch with us if they need help or if they have any further questions.”
