Appleby Petfield News


Valuation instructions through our partner organisations have continued to increase whilst instructions for Planning and Building Control Approvals have maintained a steady growth.

We are expanding business into different areas. We joined Upshoot, an online enquiry portal having been allocated Sussex as our core area.

We continue to work with many of our longstanding existing clients from individuals, businesses and website-based portals to provide services in key areas across Sussex and adjacent counties.

In Tammy Gooch joined the secretarial team for Felicity. Tammy has taken up the reins working hard to develop her own skill base. We wish Felicity well and wish to offer our heartfelt thanks for her enthusiasm, drive and dedication over the last 14 years.


Property Market

The property market has been steady but values have stagnated and begun to fall away during the course of the year.

There is a mismatch between the expectation of sellers and buyers with properties taking time to sell at a market price. With continued uncertainties, the current circumstances are likely to continue for some time beyond which the movement in the wider economy will dictate how the property market reacts.

It is likely to be a relatively slow year for values although the number of transactions remains healthy.

We all look forward with positivity, continuing to explore avenues for growth and building on our existing service base.
