Tony Lea

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of our friend and former Partner, Tony Lea.

Tony started with the practice over 25 years ago, establishing it as a family business by joining his father, founding partner Bernard Lea. Tony was a key part of our valuation department, building up the survey team across the Preston area and working for a wide variety of clients across the region.

As a Preston man through and through, he was season ticket holder at Preston North End, whilst he also enjoyed rockabilly music and all things historic, particularly castles and associated trivia.

He enjoyed the respect of colleagues and clients alike and will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with his family and children.



“We had a Schedule of Condition carried out on a Commercial Property. From vacant possession to our proposed completion date we were really tight on time. Gary managed to carry out the inspection and write a very thorough report in the time needed to ensure we hit our completion date. The price of the report was also extremely competitive. I would recommend Lea Hough to anyone looking for a Professional Surveyors with excellent service & communication at a competitive price.”
