Derek is a charted valuation surveyor specialising in business rates. He has wide ranging experience in the field and as part of GL Hearn’s business rates team, secures savings for clients by appealing their rating assessments and advising them on rates mitigation strategies.

Before joining GL Hearn in 2017 Derek worked for the Glasgow City Assessor where he was a Divisional Valuer in charge of a team of chartered surveyors specialising in valuation for rating.

Derek oversaw the valuation of property in Glasgow’s south side and has experience in dealing with a wide variety of subjects from high profile retail, office and industrial developments, to specialised properties such as Glasgow’s Riverside Museum and shipyards. He has successfully presented evidence before the Valuation Appeal Committee and has experience in preparing cases to be heard before the Lands Tribunal and Lands Valuation Appeal Court.

As Derek managed a team of chartered surveyors carrying out the 2017 rating revaluation for the south of Glasgow he has a unique insight into how the Assessor has prepared the Valuation Roll and now uses this knowledge and experience to achieve savings for his clients and secure reductions to their rateable values on appeal.
