Legat Owen has appointed a new chartered surveyor to bolster its 38-strong team.

Sandy Ratcliffe joins the Chester-based commercial property consultancy from Matthews and Goodman, in Liverpool, where he began his career as a graduate surveyor in 2015.

During his time there, he gained experience in various departments including valuation, rating, management and agency and qualified as a RICS chartered surveyor last October.

In his new role, Ratcliffe will work alongside director, James Lutton, in the retail agency team as well as assist Mark Eastwood who heads up property valuation.

Speaking about his appointment, Ratcliffe, said: “After becoming chartered, I was keen to take on a new challenge which is why I chose to join Legat Owen.

“It has such a strong reputation among surveyors in the north west and the opportunity to work for an award-winning company was too much for me to turn down. I’m really looking forward to joining the team and working with them to push the business forward in the years to come.”

James Lutton, director at Legat Owen, said: “It’s great to welcome Sandy as he is incredibly focussed and already has some good experience under his belt.

“We are always looking at ways to recruit new talent and strengthen our team and the skills he brings will be a real asset to the business.”

Legat Owen is one of the region’s leading multi-disciplinary, commercial property consultancies. Headquartered in Chester and with an office in Nantwich, the firm covers the whole of the UK, with a focus on North Wales and Cheshire.

The 38-strong team advises on all aspects of commercial property and land for both commercial and residential development.
