A number of our clients have both types of assets and we feel the best use of resources and staff expertise is to bring the two teams together. This will enhance the service that we can give to clients.

“Ben has worked with me for almost 14 years and will co-ordinate the new department’s activities and oversee the integration of our agency IT systems. Jeremy, who has vast industrial experience gleaned from almost 30 years with us, will specialise on related Landlord & Tenant instructions including lease restructuring, renewals and rent reviews.”
