Duo of acquisitions and a new office for Linley & Simpson

Linley & Simpson has launched a new office in the heart of Bingley in a bid to expand its services throughout the Aire Valley.

The firm has opened its doors on the town’s Main Street after striking acquisition deals with independent agencies Inghams and Henleys Property Group.

Linley & Simpson has acquired the lettings book of Inghams, which specialises in property management across the Aire Valley and Bronte country.

The name of Inghams, which dates back to 1925, will continue as it will now be focusing on providing block management services to blocks of flats and apartments from its current base on Market Street.

Meanwhile, the agreement clinched with Henleys has resulted in the acquisition of its operations in both lettings and residential sales across a similar geographical footprint.

Will Linley, Chief Executive of Linley & Simpson, said: “We are thrilled to extend our letting and sales expertise into this thriving community, and look forward to helping more and more people move home.

“Although we have a track record for letting and selling homes in this area through our sister offices in Saltaire, Skipton and Ilkley, it is a major step forward for us to have a dedicated presence in Bingley for the first time.

“It is another bullseye location that’s a perfect geographical fit, as it enables us to expand our services and offer unrivalled top-to-tail coverage of this increasingly-popular stretch of the Aire Valley.

“With its improved transport links to business hubs of Leeds and Bradford, researchers have pinpointed Bingley as one of the fastest-growing commuter hotspots in the UK – another key reasons for us to launch here.

“We are delighted to inherit staff from both Inghams and Henleys to our team – their insight and knowledge of the area adds an important dimension, and will ensure a smooth and seamless transfer for clients.”

This double strike of acquisitions has resulted in almost 400 homes transferring into Linley & Simpson’s rental portfolio across Yorkshire and the Humber.
