An exchange of contracts between Rendall & Rittner and Brooks Macdonald Group has been announced for the purchase of the entire share capital of Braemar Estates.

The company managed a portfolio of 5,000 properties, which includes residential, commercial and mixed-use facilities.

"This significant addition will strengthen our existing presence in the North West and help to progress our amibition to be a leading provider of residential block management services on a national basis."

Mr Rendall said the purchase is expected to "enhance earnings immediately" and expressed his excitement about the potential for growing the Braemar business.
