Chartered Surveyor

David Urwin

Chartered Surveyor

Time at John German? I am a Chartered Valuation Surveyor with many years of experience in the Midlands. I first joined John German in 1988 as a Trainee Surveyor, qualifying in 1994 and becoming a partner in the business in 1999. I retired from the business in 2014 and am now employed to undertake professional valuations for various purposes and to provide advice for purchasers.

The best part of your job? I have always enjoyed this element of work and am delighted to be able to focus on this now.

Top tip for buyer or seller? My top tip to any purchaser is to commission a survey on the property you wish to buy. By doing so you put yourself in the position of being aware of any defects, anomalies in values and in consequence not making any costly mistakes.
