Arnold & Baldwin launches Zoom training sessions for brokers

Arnold & Baldwin will be hosting free one-to-one Zoom training sessions with mortgage brokers.

The initiative aims to educate intermediaries about the RICS Home Survey Standard, how to properly prepare buyers and how a well-managed survey can lead to a successful deal.

According to the chartered surveyor, the training could help improve conversion rates, client confidence and customer outcomes.

Brokers can arrange a Zoom training session by contacting [email protected].

Joe Arnold, managing director at Arnold & Baldwin (pictured above), said: “A well-managed and well-communicated survey can actually help to hold a deal together, showing that there is nothing to hide when it comes to the condition of the property. 

“Lenders are increasingly turning to automated valuations based on statistical trends and often no surveyor enters the building to inspect the actual condition of the property. 

“As a broker, you secure the finance your client needs to buy the property, but if that purchase leads to unquantifiable costs in the future, your clients’ finances are going to be considerably damaged. 

“So, you have a responsibility to make your client aware of the risks as a purchaser, not just as a borrower.”
