A hugely enjoyable evening was held at Olivers Coffee & Wine Bar. Throughout the complimentary drinks & nibbles, Henry Smith, MP for Crawley, was available to discuss the imminent changes affecting local vendors and landlords.

Whilst sellers are currently enjoying the increase in property prices (partly due to stamp duty changes), landlords were keen to share their serious concerns about increased regulatory and tax changes. Henry Smith followed up on a number of points in the House of Commons.

The fire service provided free smoke alarms (certain conditions need to be met; please contact us if this could be helpful to you, or a neighbour). Specialist tax experts and mortgage brokers provided individual advice. If you would like to attend future events please let us know.
