Lea Hough to Expand Practice

Lea Hough is continuing its recent period of growth in a deal that will see us join forces with a Lancaster firm of Chartered Surveyors.

We’re delighted to announce that as of 1st June, Matthew Parkinson Surveying Limited became part of Lea Hough, with Matthew Parkinson joining the practice as a Partner to head up the Residential Valuation Department.

Matthew, who specialises in residential valuation work and is a RICS Registered Valuer and Chartered Building Surveyor, has over 20 years of industry experience, having worked for a large national corporate firm of valuers and other professional surveying companies before setting up his own successful surveying firm in 2016.

As a Partner at Lea Hough, Matthew will continue to serve his client base in the Lancaster area whilst also working across the firm’s main offices in Preston and Blackburn.

Commenting on the move, Matthew Parkinson said:

“I have really enjoyed forming and building up my own successful surveying practice over the past two years, but when the opportunity to become part of Lea Hough arose, it was an easy decision to make.

“Lea Hough is a well-known and very well respected firm in Lancashire and in joining forces with the practice, I hope to be able to more firmly establish this good name in my home town Lancaster, along with the wider north Lancashire and South Cumbria areas.”

Paul Dignan, Partner at Lea Hough, commented:

“Experienced and well-qualified Residential Surveyors and Valuers are becoming hard to come by and we’re confident that by joining forces with Matthew, clients across both of our firms will be better served. As well as being a good fit professionally, there are strong business and cultural synergies between ourselves and Matthew.

“Work coming into the practice has been gathering pace over the past 12 months and Matthew joining us will set the firm up well for the years ahead.”

Lea Hough is a multi-disciplined Chartered Surveyors and Building Consultancy firm that serves both residential and commercial clients. Our main lines of work include Valuation, Building Surveying, Planning & Development and Property Management. With twenty staff, Lea Hough provides property consultancy services throughout Lancashire and across the North West.
