“This acquisition is a natural step forward for us as we look to continue our programme of strategic expansion, both across our heartland as well as into new areas.
“We are delighted to augment our growing portfolio of properties with those previously managed by Carrington’s.
“It will add an extra dimension to our business – giving tenants a wider choice of property and offering new landlords access to an unrivalled database across our nine Yorkshire offices.”
