So you know that you aren’t alone

I can’t recommend Will and the team at Merit more highly; their technical and market knowledge is excellent, their advice is extremely helpful and sound, and their level of professionalism is exemplary. If you are requiring any kind of property services, particularly with respect to conservation and restoration, Will and Merit Estates would be my first port of call every time.

County Durham Private Client

Merit Estates was really brilliant with our homebuyers report. As first time buyers the whole process was totally new to us and Andrew helped make this clearer. The report we were given was super clear & arrived the same day that the survey was carried out. Overall really happy with the service we received and would use them again for our next house move.

A Happy Customer

We can say without hesitation that Will is not only extremely knowledgeable but also very helpful. He is professional but amiable and easily contactable. He has, quite simply, saved our skin many times – and our money – which is what we farmers like best!

County Durham Farmer and Tourist Business Owner

Will has shown a prodigious knowledge of farming practice, environmental conservation and forestry, regulatory benefits and requirements, planning, taxation and land law. He has conducted the sales with energy and skill, keeping relations with tenants and purchasers positive and constructive throughout. We regard the sales that he has achieved as being exceptionally well managed: he is a consummate negotiator.

Private Client Landowner

Smart, organized, professional and well connected. Will’s knowledge of land sales and planning law has pushed us in a direction we never knew existed. He is a skilled leader and negotiator, and excellent value for money. Unreservedly recommended!

Property Investor and Developer

Before I picked Merit Estates, I made sure I did my research as I wanted the right specialist to survey a Grade II Listed home. I wanted a surveyor that understood the challenges of maintaining these beautiful buildings but could also signpost me to possible solutions to those challenges. I wasn’t disappointed. With the aid of the drone inspection, I received a very professional and detailed survey report that captured everything I need to know! I cannot thank James and all of team enough for their high-quality advice and supporting me to buy my next home.
