Method for Packagers

Packagers, we simplify

The Method xi software system provides packagers with a fast and reliable way to obtain the valuation they need to support their clients' loan application.

At Method we know that speed, efficiency and accuracy is essential when progressing loan applications. Our system takes the hassle out of requesting quotes, instructing surveyors, and receiving quotes.

How it works

Lenders set their criteria

Establishing criteria such as the level of PII, number of company directors, how close to a property a surveyor should be based etc.

Property professionals set parameters

Valuation and IMS practices outline the type of work they wish to receive by market sector, property type and location.


The systems’ algorithms select the most appropriate surveyors based on the parameters and criteria.

Quotation and instruction

Suitable panel members are asked to provide a fee quote, confirm their availability and ability to meet SLAs. The packager chooses who to instruct.

Reports & quality checking

If required, we provide Quality Control checks from suitably qualified RICS surveyors, to ensure compliance with the lender's requirements.
