Lawyers who have steered through the sale of two buildings in Preston’s Winckley Square say the deals are signs of an upturn in the commercial property market.

Lancashire firm Linder Myers Solicitors has recently completed on the sale of two buildings in the historic square.

Sold for an undisclosed amount, Lytham based P&S Consulting Engineers Ltd have purchased the 2000 sq ft Georgian property at 31 Winckley Square.

Preston based Hazelwells Estate Agents have completed on the adjacent 2800 sq ft property at number 32.

Raymond Green, commercial property partner at Linder Myers in Preston said: “Winckley Square has historically been a much sought after hotspot with its magnificent Grade II properties and central location making it an ideal spot for business premises.

“The recent transactions signify a positive upturn in the commercial property market in the city and I anticipate further investment in Winckley Square which will return it to its former glory and position as one of Preston’s hidden gems.

“Many of the buildings in the square have historical significance.

“Blue plaques adorn some of the properties and suffragette Edith Rigby lived there.”

Recently acquiring neighbouring firm Dickson Haslam, Linder Myers delivers a broad range of legal services to both individuals and SME and owner managed businesses.

The firm is a member of the Consulegis Group, the international network of over 1,700 lawyers from 150 cities worldwide.
