Meet The Family
With the unique distinction of being a Solicitor since 1976 and a National Association of Estate Agents qualification there is simply no one in Chester with Duncan’s property experience. His Public experience as Acting CEO, Director of Law, Director of Development and Director of Highways has given him extensive knowledge of conveyancing, Estate Management, Housing standards, Planning Rules and Building Regulations. His estates and property experience includes many housing, residential and commercial developments. That experience is of real value to buyers, sellers and landlords, heading off problems before they happen.
Duncan believes clients should benefit from the best possible performance standards, learnt from his roles as a Best Value Inspector assessing the quality of public services and a Law Society National Monitor of the training standards of Solicitors.
