North East chartered surveying firm Bradley Hall is forging a close relationship with Lloyds Bank in the North East after being appointed on the prestigious Lloyds Bank Valuation Panel for Secured Lending.
Lloyds Bank operates a network of 1,300 branches across England and Wales, offering a full range of financial services. The company, which was renamed from Lloyds TSB in 2013 employs almost 46,000 people across its branches and headquarters.
“Our knowledge of the local market will help Lloyds Bank to further strengthen their offering to customers in Newcastle and the North East, as well as expand our business opportunities.”Richard Rafique, director at Bradley Hall, said: “Lloyds Bank is traditionally thought of as one of the ‘Big Four’ clearing banks and enjoys a solid reputation for customer satisfaction and we are delighted to announce our participation on the valuation panel for secured lending.
Its Grey Street office in Newcastle city centre focuses predominantly on commercial property, with plans to open a residential operation within the building in the coming months, while the Gosforth office deals mainly with residential enquiries.
