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.

Collectors Sale Report - May 10th, 2017 - An unusual, scarce ivory slide rule soared to £9,500 at Tamlyns’ recent Collectors sale held in Bridgwater on 10th May. Entered via a valuation morning held in West Somerset, the rule was unusual in that it was of square section with two slides and could obviously be used for many complicated calculations; it also had its original pressed card case. There were no makers names visible on the rule and it was in excellent condition having been owned by the same family for many years. Pre-sale interest was good with telephone lines and online bidders registering bids; it became clear that two determined collectors were after it with the bidding quickly reaching the thousands.
