Instructing surveyors for commercial applications. 

We’ve now appointed VAS as our surveyor panel manager for all commercial finance applications. VAS work with a highly experienced panel of 3rd Party Valuation firms, with full UK coverage. This ensures your loan security valuations and monitoring surveys are carried out by the most relevant company based on location, transaction type and value.

VAS’ extensive and varied panel of nationwide firms is the most comprehensive database of its kind, with over 190 valuation firms covering in excess of 250 regional offices - many of whom are able to leverage off multi-disciplinary departments, which means they can provide the most up-to-date and accurate advice to you.

VAS understands the end-to-end lending process and the risks associated with providing secured loans. Our partnership ensures an efficient delivery of quality-controlled valuations and ultimately assists in reducing the time to cash for your clients.

Whilst technology plays a key role within all of VAS’ processes, experienced people remain at the heart of what they do. Technology drives the efficiencies, but not at the expense of human interaction and decision making. VAS exists to create a seamless and efficient journey for a lender, intermediary and the customer.

We’ve created a number of handy guides to help with the changes.

My Broker Venue updates. 

We've made a couple of changes on My Broker Venue.

1. We're renaming the ‘Customer Account Details’ tab to ‘Funding Account Details’ and renaming the Direct Debit tab to ‘Direct Debit details’. This is to make it clearer which tab is for DD account information and which tab is for disbursement account information.
2. For personal finance applications we've removed the ‘letter from employer to confirm that the applicant is not at risk of redundancy' from the checklist.
