The Ferry Tavern Limited, Penketh, Warrington
" . . . Prior to meeting you, the end of lease/rent review negotiations were something we were not looking forward to and at times it has been worrying for us, but . . . having you in our corner gave us much reassurance and confidence going forward. We could not recommend you highly enough to others, as you have been worth your weight in gold."
Andy Mulholland - Director, The Ferry Tavern Limited
" . . . I found the way of your involvement very professional, the communication smooth and there were no hidden charges. I've had a bad experience previously, when I applied for a business rates relief on another property . . . and I am impressed how different you were."

“ It was way back in 2008 when we first were introduced to John Houston, as someone who could possibly help us with the threat of a forthcoming Compulsory Purchase Order, which if served, would take away the land upon which our two businesses operated. John advised us throughout the whole process, which began with a Public Inquiry and ended with an Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) hearing in Autumn 2016. That equates to eight years of advice and service from one of the most professional consultants we have come across in our many years of business. Always polite, accurate and thorough, he stood by us, giving us the benefit of his extensive knowledge, expertise and support, without which, we would never have achieved the final settlement to our claim . . . we could not recommend John Houston highly enough, as a consultant to act on your behalf. He will support you and never let you down. “
