Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

WAKE­FIELD’S grow­ing ap­peal as a place to live has been un­der­lined af­ter one of the city’s let­ting agents re­vealed its busiest day in its his­tory.

Staff from Linley & Simp­son, in North­gate, handed over a record­break­ing 43 sets of keys one weekend this month to ten­ants mov­ing into new prop­er­ties.

Man­ager Ross Hard­ing says: “This was not just the busiest day for the Wake­field branch, but the busiest one for any of the com­pany’s ten branches since launch­ing 16 years ago.

“This weekend comes on the back of our busiest year for the of­fice.

“The rise in rental de­mand high­lights how far the dis­trict has trav­elled as a pop­u­lar place to live and work.”
