Work completed just before Christmas on four luxury apartments by Helmsley Group in Hereford town centre.
The homes are housed in a Grade II* listed building and offer stunning views of Hereford Cathedral.
Tom Sykes from Helmsley Group says: “These apartments are full of character, with features like spiral staircases and windows that overlook Hereford cathedral making them really stand out. The designs make use of natural light, offering people a stunning place to live in a beautiful building right in the town centre.”

VetPartners is preparing for take-off with a move to a new headquarters in Clifton Moor, York.
The veterinary group, which was established in November 2015, owns 94 of the UK’s most respected and trusted small animal, equine, mixed and farm animal veterinary practices.
The new office is double the size of the current headquarters. VetPartners CEO Jo Malone said: “VetPartners’ roots are in York and our new head office will provide the base for our ongoing expansion.”
Tom Sykes, Group Surveyor at Helmsley Group, said: “The letting of Spitfire House represents one of the largest single occupier leasehold transactions in York for a number of years.”
“We are delighted to have secured a new tenant for our clients at the property on Clifton Moor. As a York-based property company, we are also delighted to have completed the lease as we believe this shows that York is an attractive option for large companies such as VetPartners.
“Their commitment to York was evident throughout the whole negotiation period and we hope other local, regional and national companies follow suit.”
The Helmsley Group was advised by Langleys Solicitors.
James Bradley, senior associate in the commercial property team at Langleys, said: “This represents a significant letting in York’s commercial property market, attracting a major national brand to relocate its head office to Clifton Moor. We are very pleased to conclude the deal negotiations on behalf of both the Helmsley Group and its syndicates.”
A team from Helmsley Group took part in a Women in Property netball and networking tournament in January.
The event was held at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield and saw 10 teams compete.
Team Captain, Candice Robertshaw, comments: “There was a lively and competitive atmosphere on the night, and in true Helmsley Group fashion we had great fun. We’re even looking into joining a local York league with the new dream team.”
A unique new development targeting first time buyers in York has builders on site this week.
The Hallfields scheme from local developer Helmsley Group is set to create 14 new build apartments within walking distance of the city centre.
The collection of 14 new build apartments is set to launch in Summer 2019 and is one of the few new schemes targeting the first time buyer market through the Help To Buy scheme.
Max Reeves, Director at The Helmsley Group, comments: “The York homes market has been tough on first time buyers in the last few years, with high prices and little stock coming on the market except for some of our schemes at Clifton Moor.
There’s a real need to help these younger buyers in the city and we’re delighted that work has started at Hallfields, so first time buyers can also have access to city living with help from the government backed Help To Buy scheme.”
We ask Sue Jones, Financial Director at Helmsley Group about the impact on our clients of making tax digital
Sue says: ‘Both Helmsley Group and Colenso are making the necessary preparations to ensure the smooth transfer to Making Tax Digital, which comes into force from 1st April 2019.
VAT returns will have to be submitted either through compatible accounting software, or through ‘bridging’ software.
The financial team at Helmsley Group has been preparing for this move with seminars and training, to see which software will be most valuable for our clients.
For LLPs and any companies requiring accounts, we’ll be moving from preparing accounts manually using excel spreadsheets, to an accounting package called Xero. This is very user friendly, cloud based software and will cost £264 per company per year.
For our syndicated properties, which don’t require annual accounts, we’ll be submitting VAT returns through bridging software called Absolute Accounting, whereby we input the necessary figures into the software, which it then uploads to HMRC. The cost will be £40 per syndicate per annum.
