Yorkshire estate agent, Dacre, Son & Hartley, has appointed Eric Leiper as head of residential surveying department.
Formerly manager of survey operations at Abbey, Leiper was involved in many exciting projects including the development of Abbeys range of Adaptable Homes.

We are committed to bringing the right people on board to ensure that the firm grows from strength to strength.
Leiper says: Dacre, Son & Hartley is a major force within the surveying market here in Yorkshire and I am proud to be joining such a successful team. My key aim will be to ensure Dacre, Son & Hartley is the number one provider in the residential professional surveying services market.
