Stuart Pender, group chief executive of Lomond, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce a number of deals following our recent merger with Linley & Simpson.

“These deals very much signal our intention to continue to consolidate regional markets through our network of market leading regional agents and is a continuation of our approach to building our business while retaining our successful local approach.”

He added: “We are looking for new opportunities to work with good quality lettings and estate agencies across all of our regions.”

Lomond merged with Yorkshire residential lettings firm Linley & Simpson at the start of the year. Linley & Simpson added more than 600 homes to its portfolio only last month with the purchase of the residential lettings and management division of Dacre, Son & Hartley.

The enlarged group now manages more than 23,000 residential properties and employs some 580 members of staff.
