Benjamin TobinBSc FRICS RPRDirector Chartered Surveyor & Registered Fixed Charge Receiver
On leaving university, Benjamin worked at the Israel Museum Department of Antiquities in Jerusalem as a surveyor of Archaeological Excavations before returning to London and working in the West End; first in a small Chartered Surveyors’ practice and then for a major property company. On joining Strettons, he worked as part of the valuation team and first went on the rostrum as an auctioneer in 1979.
Today, apart from being Chairman of the firm, Benjamin’s time is largely spent in Property Receivership incorporating advice to both lenders and borrowers with experience of cases involving fraud and negligence, as well as advising High Net Worth individuals on property investment and other matters. He has considerable experience of advising charities on property matters and was one of only two chartered surveyors in the UK on the Charity Commission Panel of Receivers and Manager.
Outside the office, Benjamin spends time on charity work, listening to classical music and jazz as well as playing the saxophone himself. He enjoys studying, walking, and playing with his grandchildren, and is also known for his dedication to cycling to work, rain or shine.
