The Gotelee commercial-property team have recently had the pleasure of finalising and completing a new business lease for esteemed chartered surveyors and estate agent Fenn Wright as part of their expansion to the Woodbridge area. The new offices at Nunn’s Mill, Quayside, provide an obvious setting for the property experts as they extend their A12 corridor presence, featuring onsite parking and ease of access into the main Woodbridge town centre.
The expansion to the Quayside office accompanies a meeting of two key-property minds with the acquisition of highly respected Neals Estate Agent by Fenn Wright. Neals has enjoyed a loyal local client base having been established in 1951 by Dennis HB Neal and has subsequently flourished at the hands of James Neal who now joins Fenn Wright as an Associate Partner alongside Charlie Wright. James’ unparalleled expertise in the Woodbridge property market will no doubt be a huge asset to Fenn Wright as they establish their tenth branch. Gotelee’s involvement in the development of the project was multifaceted with Gotelee Corporate and Commercial Solicitor Laura Gray acting for Neals during the acquisition.
Laura Gray said: ‘It was a pleasure to act for James Neal in the acquisition of Neals, which has been a respected Woodbridge business for decades.’
James Neal said: ‘I much appreciated Laura’s calm, professional approach and support during the course of the transaction. I will relish my new role at Fenn Wright looking after clients old and new’
Emma Cracknell, Commercial Property Solicitor, Gotelee said: ‘We are privileged to have worked with Fenn Wright on this exciting expansion into this thriving town. The Whisstocks development, which is close to the iconic Tide Mill provides much-needed commercial space for Woodbridge and combines a modern approach with a sympathetic architectural style.’’
Alistair Mitchell of Fenn Wright said: ‘’Gotelee as a leading Suffolk firm, but most importantly with a strong presence in Woodbridge, was the obvious choice for us in overseeing the acquisition of our new premises. We were delighted to work with Emma and the Woodbridge team who provided sound, pragmatic and efficient advice. We’re confident that we can replicate the success of our other established offices helping those looking to buy, sell or let either residential and commercial property, in Woodbridge and the surrounding areas.’’
