Linley & Simpson Expands Wakefield Operation As Rental Operation As Rental Demand Continues To Grow

YORKSHIRE'S largest residential letting agents, Linley & Simpson, has sealed a deal to strengthen its position in Wakefield - just three months after launching in the city.

As demand for property rentals continues to soar on the back of mounting pressures on the house sales market, Linley & Simpson has successfully acquired the lettings business of neighbouring Northgate agency Ashtons.

This week's deal has resulted in the whole of Ashtons' letting portfolio - which covers Wakefield, Horbury and Ossett - transferring under the management of Linley & Simpson.

"Wakefield is the newest in our Yorkshire network of seven offices and this deal will enhance the service we can offer landlords and tenants across the district," said Linley & Simpson branch manager Ross Harding.

"We only opened the doors to our Wakefield office in June yet we have witnessed a demand for properties that has already exceeded our expectations - a clear sign of the health of the rental market.

"This deal reinforces our position as a major player in Wakefield's residential letting market and enables us to stay at the forefront of its growth."

He added: "It offers landlords and property investors the opportunity of being able to access a wider pool of prospective tenants. Tenants also benefit by having a wider choice of properties to match their needs."

Linley & Simpson director Nick Simpson said the agency has just experienced the busiest ever month in its 11-year history.

"This acquisition marks another important step in the company's growth and gives us a strong platform for further enhancing the high level of customer service and satisfaction that we strive to achieve," he said.

"It paves the way for linking our presence across Leeds with our expanded Wakefield operations, to cater for the increasing number of people who work in Leeds but who choose to live in the Wakefield district."

The privately-run company has its roots very firmly in Yorkshire and has three sister branches in Leeds - the city centre, Horsforth and Oakwood - as well as offices in York, Harrogate and Wetherby.

Its dedication to customer service has led to it achieving the strict criteria required to secure accreditation to both the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), and the National Approved Letting Scheme (NALS).
