Property agency and consultancy, Graham + Sibbald, are expanding their presence in the South of England following their acquisition of independent Chartered Surveying firm, Keningtons.

Currently, Graham +Sibbald has more than 220 staff with offices in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh and elsewhere in Scotland. They now add Kenington's two offices in Swindon and central London to those.

The newly acquired offices will operate as “Graham + Sibbald incorporating Keningtons” in London and Swindon.

Those offices will say, Graham + Sibbald’s become the focus of their expansion in the south of England.

The deal will enable them to expand the reach of their professional property services to national clients across the UK.

Senior Partner at Graham + Sibbald, Les McAndrew, says: “I am delighted to announce that Graham + Sibbald are acquiring the long-established firm of Keningtons.

“I am absolutely confident that the acquisition of Keningtons will give us an excellent platform to springboard from in London and The South and accelerate our growth plans towards specific business targets. We greatly look forward to welcoming the Keningtons team officially into the Graham + Sibbald family and using Marylebone as our new London base.

“Keningtons has been in business since 1935 and provides professional services to a variety of clients including property funds, property companies, landlords, tenants and occupiers, charities, trade unions, the insurance sector, banks and private individuals. The balanced General Practice nature of their business marries very well with that of our own so it’s a great fit.”

Keningtons’ Managing Partner, Jill Howells, says: “I am excited by the potential of the combined firm. It gives us the expansion we need, as well as more resources and new service lines. 

“Our people will continue in the same roles and this will make the transition as seamless as possible allowing us to focus on the future and the great opportunities that lie ahead”.
