Leeds-based property company acquires estate agency

Leeds-based property company Adair Paxton has significantly increased the number of city centre rental apartments it manages after acquiring boutique estate agency firm, Hudson Moody Wass.

Founded in 2001, Hudson Moody Wass operates from city centre offices on York Place and manages a significant rentals portfolio on behalf of more than 200 landlords, as well as offering a residential sales service.

Both its residential and lettings divisions, as well as several members of its team, will now merge with Adair Paxton, which celebrated its 160th anniversary earlier this year. It’s the third acquisition in 10 years for Adair Paxton, which employs 30 members of staff, offering a full range of residential and commercial property services across offices in Leeds city centre, Horsforth and Adel.

Guy Roberts, director at Adair Paxton, said: “Hudson Moody Wass has a reputation for providing a very high standard of service and reliable, considered advice. This complements our ethos perfectly and made it a good fit for our business whilst also enabling us to continue building on our long and proud history in Leeds.

“Crucially, Hudson Moody Wass has established a substantial residential rentals portfolio, worth more than £50million, in Leeds city centre, where tenant demand is currently soaring. Plus, after years of under-supply, work is now underway on several new, high-profile apartment developments that will help shape the future of the city centre’s residential property market and encourage even more investors and tenants into Leeds.

“When this is combined with the city’s phenomenal rate of growth, it makes it a really exciting time for both Leeds and city living as a whole, and this acquisition will help to further cement our position at the forefront of Leeds’s property market.”
