Media Release: Launch of Shepherd moveAssist offers Home Reports with interest-free credit


SHEPHERD Chartered Surveyors today (21.10.11) launches Shepherd moveAssist, an innovative scheme offering Home Reports with nothing to pay for three months followed by 12 equal interest-free payments for customers.

Says a spokesperson: “The only product of its kind currently available to Scottish sellers, the launch of Shepherd moveAssist follows the withdrawal of deferred credit sources to private sellers in the Scottish market following changes to European consumer credit legislation.”

Ian Fergusson, managing partner at Shepherd, said: “When you’re looking to move home the last thing you want to worry about is where to find the money to cover the cost of putting your property on the market for sale. Shepherd moveAssist makes moving easy.

“The only product of its kind currently available in Scotland, Shepherd moveAssist has been developed to provide home sellers with interest-free credit, affiliated to the high-quality service and advice provided by J & E Shepherd Chartered Surveyors, to help sellers bring their homes to the market, making it easier for homemovers to seize the opportunities available and help counteract the difficult market conditions that currently prevail.”

Unique to Shepherd Chartered Surveyors, one of the largest independent firms of chartered surveyors in the UK, Shepherd moveAssist enables home sellers to add their agent’s marketing and legal fees to the total cost of their Home Report pack, which can then form part of the payment plan.

A national surveying business with a history stretching back more than 130 years, the Shepherd Surveying Group provides its clients with years of experience and expertise, together with national resources and comprehensive local market knowledge.

Originating in Scotland with a network of offices and surveyors across the UK, Shepherd offers a multi-disciplinary property service encompassing a comprehensive range of services, including home report, valuation, development advice, corporate recovery, commercial property asset management, agency services (lettings, disposals and acquisitions) building surveying and Energy Performance Certificates.
