Taylor & Fletcher, the long-established Cotswolds land agent, is to resume trading in its own right after splitting with Humberts Cotswold.

The firm amalgamated with Humberts in 2002, but after the announcement that Humberts’ parent company is to join forces with Chesterton, it has reverted to a local firm.

“We decided to court the opinion of our clients and the resounding response was for us to resume trading as Tayler & Fletcher, providing a well-founded and professional service to our client base,” said agent Charles Arkell.
