Mortgage Lending Services      

Government Services                

Fast and accurate property valuations are a critical component of the loans approval process for mortgage lenders.

Operating since 1990 Herriots is Queensland’s leading firm of independent valuers.  We pride ourselves on providing accurate and speedy valuations and have a proven professional record. 

We follow up with clients to ensure our reports are helpful and understood.   We pride ourselves on developing a personal rapport with each of our clients to ensure they get the right type of information, in the format they need, to properly manage their lending activity.  Herriots maintains a highly mobile workforce, available to travel to any branch office at short notice to support local teams with very large valuation projects.  Our state of the art computer logging system enables us to view the progress of every valuation in real time so a client can access and update on where a job is up to at any time.

Herriots is completely independent, with no affiliations or associations with real estate agents, property marketers, developers, or other parties that may have influence on the company’s ability to provide honest, independent, objective and accurate valuations and reports.

As a privately owned company, Herriots can also respond to government tenders on behalf of all branches of the business without the negotiations and liaisons required by many franchised property valuation firms which effectively operate as separate businesses under the one brand name.

We offer specialist services in:

  • Statutory valuations and local authority revaluation work

  • Development and feasibility analysis

  • Assessment of compensation for acquisition purposes

  • Investment property analysis

  • Site identification and negotiation for purchaser acquisition

  • Market research

  • Replacement values for insurance purpose

Herriots’ reputation is a testament to the company’s best industry practice and management excellence.  The company has strict quality control procedures and prides itself on providing professional, accurate and reliable valuations.

Herriots is completely independent, with no affiliations or associations with real estate agents, property marketers, developers, or other parties that may have influence on the company’s ability to provide honest, independent, objective and accurate valuations and reports.

Is your property being resumed?

Family Law Services                

Statutory authorities are required by law to pay compensation for land being resumed based on the market value of their property, but the law recognises that people having land resumed should be compensated properly and fairly.  In most cases, costs of valuation fees, legal fees, Town Planning, etc. are also recoverable.  Herriots can advise you of your entitlements.

We offer a range of valuation and consultancy services including:

  • Assessment of compensation entitlements for acquisition purposes

  • Advice regarding a government agency’s right to reclaim land

  • Consumer advocacy for ethical treatment of land owners

If you have a concern about the way that a government agency is moving to acquire your land, contact Herriots today. 

Have you been ripped off?        

With an established reputation as a consumer advocate for ethical standards of practice in the property industry, Herriots is credited with exposing two tier marketing scams and other underhanded practices in the real estate industry.
