Andrew Fairbairn, FRICS LLM, Director
Andrew has over 35 years’ property experience and is a founding Director of White Commercial having previously worked in local government, Fairview Estates, Saudi Fal (in Saudi Arabia), Chesterton and Fairbairn Wild. Andrew carries out Commercial and Residential Property Management, Investment and Professional work including valuations, rent reviews, lease renewals and rating work. Andrew is also a party wall surveyor and provides advice in boundary disputes.
He has undertaken research into advanced commercial property law and takes seminars in China and Vietnam on behalf of Oxford Brookes University for experienced delegates with a financial or property background seeking to become Chartered Surveyors. This helps Andrew to maintain an up to date knowledge of changes in legislation, regulations and case law which can be applied to identify opportunities for clients to optimise their returns from, and use of, their property holdings.
Andrew is an active Rotary member and also exercises his penchant for beauty, tranquility and excitement by sailing a 7.9 metre yacht off the southern coast of Cornwall and trekking mountains in search of rock scrambles, exposed ridges and panoramic views! These pursuits encouraged him in 2009 to undertake a 1,200 mile walking, cycling and kayaking challenge from the Scilly Isles to the Shetland Islands to raise money for schools for disabled children in Uganda. More recently (2016) he raised funds for a borehole project at a school in Gambia which is now operational, providing clean water for current and future generations of staff and students.
