As experienced commercial property consultants, we know the key to a successfully managed premises is ensuring it presents an attractive proposition to landlords and tenants. So we were pleased to discover that one of the reasons local accountancy firm, Whitehall Accountants wanted to relocate to the Coach House at Desford Hall was because we are the managing agent.

The firm’s Director, Dominic Payne explains: “Our first interaction with Wells McFarlane was subletting a spare space at Narborough Wood Park some ten years ago not long after we launched the business. Andrew McFarlane Holt worked flexibly to ensure we were settled, encountered minimal disruption and ensure the terms of the lease worked well for us and his client.

“As the business grew, we’ve naturally needed more space but have always moved within Wells McFarlane managed estates, apart from the move before last. This office proved to be a very painful experience and a lesson learnt, so when working models changed post-Covid, we were quick to reconnect with Wells McFarlane.

“This time we worked with Jason Hercock, who has the same approach as Andrew; the perfect balance of professionalism and common sense. Everything is done correctly from a legal stance but Jason is also commercially astute, so if there’s a need to adapt terms to make things more straightforward, he’ll act swiftly to simplify the process for everyone. Knowing there is a team we can rely on takes the pressure off and I feel confident that Wells McFarlane will support us with whatever office requirements we have.”
