TEAM Surveyors are the surveying arm of TEAM independent estate agents and ABS Surveyors, the survey arm of Simpsons Estate Agency group.

The agreement provides TEAM and ABS with access to the SecureMove report with its trademark features. The report was specifically designed with the layman in mind and clients will benefit from its easy to follow findings. Surveyors will be trained on how to carry out the SecureMove report, which Team Surveyors are to launch at their national conference.

The SecureMove survey has established a reputation as a cutting edge and innovative product. Its plain English and straightforward written style has received plaudits from customers. It has also been awarded the coveted Crystal Mark by the Plain English Campaign for its terms and conditions. Customers particularly value its one-year guarantee, which provides cover for hidden defects costing up to £50,000. Other highlights of the survey include a priority guide for each repair; an idea of costs for common problems; information on the latest practical security tips; personal contact with a surveyor.

Commenting on the agreement, SecureMove Property Services’ Managing Director, Peter Bray said: “With the home buying and selling market set to change dramatically over the next few years, it is vital that surveying firms are closely aware of the needs of their customers and have strong links with other firms in the industry. The SecureMove licence is a great way for a surveying firm to open up wider opportunities for business and to provide a market leading survey product for its customers.”

TEAM Surveyors’ Chairman, Ian Colston, and ABS Surveyors’ Director, Anthony Aldred both agreed that: “The SecureMove report is just what home buyers are looking for – straightforward advice. We are convinced that the report will appeal to our customers and increase the number of condition reports which we provide for local home buyers and for our corporate clients.”
