Louise Chapman, Operations Director of VAS Group, which incorporates VAS Panel, said “Having worked hard with HTB over the last few months, we are now very excited to be able to start supporting the team with panel management services. HTB are a long established bank with an excellent reputation and we are proud to be working with them to support their clients and brokers.”

The appointment of VAS Panel is another step towards ensuring we provide our brokers with the best possible support by obtaining residential valuations quickly for their customers with the expertise and technology that VAS provide.

“VAS Panel valuations will be available for new bridging finance applications.  We continue to work with existing partner, Appraisers UK for all term loan valuations”.
