Tamlyns Professional Services

Since Tamlyns was established in 1878, we have been offering professional property related services.

Right back through the company’s existence Tamlyns has always had a strong link with the agricultural and rural community and this is still very much a cornerstone of Tamlyns professional department's work.

The professional services departments are based at our Bridgwater office and our team of highly experienced Surveyors, Land Agents, Valuers and Auctioneers continue to offer a wide range of related services, not just to the agricultural communities upon which the business was initially founded, but across all sectors.

Whether it be Property Survey or Professional Valuation related work via our Survey and Valuation Team, Planning and Building related work via our Drawing, Planning and Design department, Agricultural related work via our Land Agents or the valuation and sale of antiques and collectibles via our Auction Sale Rooms, Tamlyns Professional has the experience and knowledge to assist you.

Tamlyns has always had a strong Auction related theme running through the work that our professional departments undertake. Holding monthly antiques and collectibles sales from our auction rooms, regular outdoor dispersal sales and numerous land and property auctions every year, auctions are still a very prominent part of our business, over a century after Tamlyns was established.

Whatever the nature of the professional work we undertake, our team of dedicated, experienced staff pride themselves on providing honest, independent, expert advice and assistance to deliver to you a service that we can be proud of.

Antiques Sale Report - October 4th, 2017 - At Tamlyns’ recent antiques auction an early English slipware dish sold for £3,400. There had been considerable pre-sale interest in the dish, and on the day a bank of telephone bidders and a room bidder battled it out with it eventually selling to one of the buyers on a telephone. Although not one of Tamlyns’ largest sales, there were some interesting and valuable lots on offer; on the day the room was busy and, combined with the many commission bids plus the telephone bidding, there was a ‘buzz’ about the room which seems to engender more frenzied bidding – certainly prices were high throughout the sale...
