Wilkinson and Partners Chartered Accountants expands in Ilkley

West Yorkshire property consultancy DE Commercial has brokered a significant office deal in the heart of Ilkley.

DE Commercial advised private clients on the letting of 9-11 South Hawksworth Street to Wilkinson and Partners Chartered Accountants, who were seeking larger premises within the town to meet their expansion strategy.

Wilkinson and Partners, who have offices in Bingley and Ilkley, already occupied the upper floors of the property and, following a comprehensive refurbishment, have now moved into the ground floor, which was previously occupied by Townstyle Barbers.

Richard Heslop, Managing Director of DE Commercial, said: “This was an excellent deal, very suitable for both parties. Wilkinson and Partners were looking for extra office space and the closure of Townstyle Barbers gave them the perfect opportunity to expand within the building they already occupied.

“This deal has also given us the chance to update and extend the lease to 10 years on the 1,650 sq ft building, providing a strong covenant for the owner and enhancing the investment value of the building. In addition, it underlines the fact that Ilkley remains an attractive location for professional services firms.”
