"Sandwell first appointed WHE in 2000 to do asset valuations and challenge rating assessments for council occupied properties. They performed so well that they are still our chosen advisors and we have just renewed their appointment for a further five years. Because Sandwell provides support to the West Midlands Fire Service, WHE do the same work for them. The work is complex and requires both of us to work as a team. That is one of the strengths of the firm. The distance between the Midlands and London seems very small because WHE communicate very well and have taken the time and effort to learn about our towns, buildings and property market. WHE have excellent professional and technical knowledge. They are active in professional bodies and industry working groups. That detailed insight into new issues has greatly helped us cope with changes to regulations on asset valuations and rating assessments."
