To all of our valued clients

We are sorry to have to announce that due to the ongoing Covid-19 related restrictions imposed upon us by Central Government, our Auction Rooms will be unable to re-open during this latest lockdown. This will take us into early December and we feel it unlikely therefore that the Auction Rooms will re-open this year. We have therefore made the difficult decision not to undertake any further auctions this year.

We thank you all for your continued patience during this difficult time. We very much hope that 2021 will bring with it some better news. Our main offices remain open and all other aspects of our business are operating as normal.

Martin Wilkins

"I used Tamlyns to carry out a survey for our help to buy redemption loan.  Highly accommodating and professional service with a quick turn around on the report which has expediated the sale of our house - I would highly recommend Tamlyns."

Clare Keene

"Excellent service from this company. They were polite, helpful and professional. Would definitely recommend!"

Steve McGinn

"Could you please pass on my regards and thanks to John for his thorough survey of our cottage. It was a pleasure to meet him as he is an absolute gentleman."

Danny Cox

"I have to say it was the best homebuyers report I have ever seen. "

Wendy Bishop

"I would just like to say how impressed I was with the survey, both in terms of the content and the presentation. The photographs were clear and pertinent, and it was a pleasure to read coherent and accurate text, something which is becoming increasingly rare."

Alex Bennett

"Great service from the team at Tamlyns, was kept up to date throughout and would highly recommend."

Dave White

"Fast and friendly good service"
