Henry Adams acquires Hampshire letting agency

Henry Adams Lettings has announced the acquisition of Country & Coastal Lettings, an established lettings and management agency based in Emsworth, Hampshire, which handles properties across southern Hampshire and West Sussex.

Ian Wiggett, Chief Executive of Henry Adams, said, “This marks our latest acquisition in recent years as we look to continue to grow the company, both organically and through mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures with reputable companies such as Country & Coastal.

“We are looking forward to working with our new landlord clients and tenants and, together with Samantha Hazle and the team at Country & Coastal, we’re working hard behind the scenes to make sure the transition is as seamless as possible for our clients.  

“We are also pleased to welcome two new members of staff from the Country & Coastal team. Caroline Smithers and Dawn Hayes are joining the Henry Adams group with immediate effect and will be based at our Emsworth office.”

Samantha Hazle became a Director of Country & Coastal Lettings in 2015 when she acquired the business, and prior to that was part of the long established estate agency Hazle & Co.

Samantha said, “Although it was not an easy decision to leave Country and Coastal behind, it was made much easier knowing I would be handing it over to Henry Adams who share the same high standards, who put their clients first and ensure both their landlords and tenants receive the very best customer service available.

“It was also very important to me to choose a local independent estate agent with many years of experience behind them. I have every confidence that our landlords and tenants will be delighted with Henry Adam’s continuation of what Country and Coastal have strived so hard to achieve over the years.”

The new Emsworth lettings team at Henry Adams will be headed by Director of Lettings, Lily White, who has 15 years as an experienced lettings professional and has held senior lettings roles across the Henry Adams group in Chichester, Storrington and Emsworth.

As an ARLA licensed agent, Lily and her new team will provide an in-depth knowledge of all things lettings, combined with a passion for providing exceptional service and client care. The team can be contacted at Henry Adams Emsworth on 01243 375676 or at emsworthlettings@henryadams.co.uk.  

As well as a successful team of lettings and holiday lets specialists, Henry Adams also has in-house property managers and offers a broad range of lettings services and options to landlords and tenants in West Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire. Henry Adams also offers a comprehensive range of property services including planning, land & development, new homes, residential sales, agricultural, commercial and fine art auctions.
