Welcome to Ken Batty
Chartered Surveyors and Property Consultants
Formed in 1993 by K Batty FRICS IRRV (RSA) following on a diverse and distinguished career dealing with all aspects of residential, commercial and industrial property as well as land agency both in private practice (Watson Batty) and the Valuation Office Agency.
The ethos of the practice is to provide a first class professional service on a highly personal basis embracing traditional and time honoured skills utilising the very best of up to the minute computerised systems.
Our expertise which is over a wide and varied field is specifically in finding pragmatic solutions for difficult property problems and obtaining results where others cannot.
We pride ourselves upon our results and our dedication to our clients on a one-to-one basis. The practice fully holds membership to the RICS by whom we are regulated; the IRRV and the RSA.
Excellence in practice is achieved through a team of highly competent, specialist surveyors and administrative members.
The wide spectrum of expertise is in the following areas – acquisitions and disposals; appraisals; arbitrations; boundary disputes; commercial agency; compulsory purchase and compensation; condition surveys; dilapidations; estate management; lease renewals; rating; rent reviews; residential property valuations and residential building surveys; valuations for all purposes.
The practice is favoured with long standing and ongoing instructions from individuals through to major PLC companies, schools and colleges throughout the United Kingdom – we are particularly appreciated by our large client base for our attention to detail and willingness at all times to go the extra mile.
The simple philosophy of the practice which is to give the very best result possible at highly competitive fees (reflecting a full no add on expensive extras) simply but honestly encompassed in the practice philosophy Integrity in Practice.
It is for this reason that unlike others who merely seek to engraciate themselves by citing a long list of clients for whom they act or believe they act we do not openly say who are clients are but have permission from our clients to disclose to genuinely interested parties their names and addresses for whom references can be obtained.
The confidentiality of our clients and their business affairs is paramount at this practice and over the years we have found that for various reasons a number of clients do not like to have their names bandered about for others gain and we will therefore not do so. Part of our integrity philosophy is the old fashion virtue of total confidentiality at all times which we find is highly valued by the clients and they tell us is a refreshing change from the banding about of their names and trumpeting by others.
Our growth over the years has been through working in
close and confidential partnership with our clients, giving the very best
service with the emphasis on the very best result possible anywhere not
by self promotion at the expense of our clients.
