Linley & Simpson property firm opens new Leeds office
Yorkshire residential property specialist Linley & Simpson has opened a new office in Headingley after acquiring Morgans North Leeds Rentals.
The opening increases the number of branches in the Linley & Simpson network across West and North Yorkshire to 18, and propels its own portfolio of managed homes to over 8,000.
The purchase of Morgans North Leeds Rentals - whose specialism in the Headingley area dates back over 20 years - is seen as a natural progression in Linley & Simpsons’ expansion.
Will Linley, chief executive of Linley & Simpson, said: “We have served in the North Leeds area for 22 years and the opening of this new branch will allow us to strengthen our leading position amongst Leeds’ suburbs.
“It creates the perfect platform for focusing our specialist lettings expertise into this popular Leeds’ area where demand for rented property continues to increase.”
This is one of the latest deals as part of the businesses planned programme of expansion throughout Yorkshire. The business is retaining the home-grown expertise and local knowledge of the former Morgans team by employing all of its staff.
Sarah Roberts, Headingley’s lettings manager, added: “We have always dealt solely with professional lets, and are the only agency in Headingley that focuses entirely on this sector, so we have a real understanding of what the professional market is looking for.
“The combination of our knowledge and expertise within the area, shared with Linley & Simpson’s unique methods and use of technology, will contribute to the high levels of customer service we can offer to our new and existing customer base and drive innovation to another level.”
The takeover coincided with a record summer of new lets for the Headingley branch, with the firm’s rental portfolio currently being 99.7 per cent occupied.
