E.surv hires chief surveyor
Chartered surveyors e.surv has appointed David Harbour as chief surveyor starting on 20 February.

Harbour has 30 years’ experience in the UK property market and business improvement, most recently as survey director at Hunters Estate Agents.

Reporting to risk and governance director Paul Ray Collins, he will be responsible for advising both clients and surveyors on emerging and existing themes impacting valuation.

He will also play a collaborative role in helping shape best practice in the surveying community.

E.surv managing director Ronan Jennings said: “A combination of commercial acumen and practical surveying experience makes David a compelling proposition for e.surv.

“He will play an important role in consolidating our reputation as property risk experts and leaders in residential surveying and we are very pleased to be welcoming him to the business.”

E.surv is a network of valuation providers operating across the UK. It acts as panel manager for more than 20 mortgage lenders.

In November, it partnered with specialist mortgage lender Vida Homeloans to act as its lead valuer. The intermediary-only lender offers a product mix across specialist residential and buy to let with plans to develop a second charge range already underway.
