The article reports on the move by CHL Mortgages to defend its approach of valuing new-build properties in Great Britain. The firm has encountered accusations that its policy of valuing new-build properties against second-hand homes is failing to treat customers fairly. Paul Davies, managing director of Mortgage Financial, has criticized CHL's practice which asks Countrywide Surveyors to base valuations on second-hand properties rather than using the identical possessions from similar ones.
