Harris Lamb has appointed a lease advisory surveyor to join its expanding team.

AbiAbigail Taylor specialises in lease advisory and valuation, and has a background of working in both the private and public sector. She joined the business this week, based at its Birmingham office.

A Nottingham Trent University graduate, Abi achieved a First Class Honours degree in Real Estate Management in 2014 and has since gone on to achieve her Chartered MRICS qualification.

Richard Fantham, director of Harris Lamb, said: “The business has gone through a significant period of growth this year, having pledged at the beginning of 2016 to grow both organically and through acquisition, and our client portfolio has increased accordingly.

“Abi is the latest specialist we’ve brought in to help us continue to service our expanding client-base, joining us from BNP Paribas Real Estate, where she focused on lease advisory.

“Abi also benefits from experience working within the public sector, having spent time with Leicestershire County Council as an Estate Management Technician, providing her with high levels of technical knowledge, which, combined with her skills and experience, will make her an asset to the Lease Advisory team,”

Abi, who lives in Birmingham, said: “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to join Harris Lamb. The business has an excellent reputation both regionally and nationally, and is currently going through an exciting time and I’m excited to be part of it,” she added.
