Business activity shows ‘no signs of slowing’ – SDL Surveying

SDL Surveying has announced that its level of business volume activity throughout October and November has shown “no signs of slowing”, despite increased lockdown measures.

October had continued SDL’s recent trend of being its busiest month on record, in terms of both volumes completed and revenue generated, and the firm said its figures for November indicate it is likely to follow the same pattern. 

As a result, the residential surveying and valuations firm revealed it was continuing to recruit surveyors – both internally and to its network – in order to grow the capacity and take advantage of the higher volumes.

“Despite increased restrictions across the UK, and the introduction of a second lockdown in England, business volumes and activity levels in the housing market show no signs of slowing,” commented SDL Surveying managing director, Simon Jackson.

“We’ve seen consumers wanting their housing transactions to continue in as normal a way as possible, especially in light of the stamp duty holiday deadline and the focus on completing before the end of March next year.

“We continue to conduct the vast majority of our work through physical valuations; however we are also carrying out desktop valuations, particularly for those consumers who are self-isolating and cannot have a surveyor entering their home.

“Our lender clients have signalled strong targets for the rest of this year and next, therefore we continue to look at our recruitment strategy in order to add the required capacity necessary to deal with this workload, and to add further clients to our roster.”
