Carter Towler was created in 2008 by the merger of Towlers and Carter and Co, two of the best known commercial surveying and property consultancy names in Leeds. The merger formed one of the biggest independent agency practices outside London, with Carter Towler occupying a unique position in the property consultancy hierarchy by providing the sort of multi-disciplined services normally associated with the larger national and international firms, combined with an exceptional, regional knowledge base.

Over the years the company has garnered a large number of leading national and regional property industry awards. We are particularly proud of the ones we have achieved consecutively for example Estate Gazette's Agency Deals Winner and Overall Regional Winner awards, both of which we have held for 13 and 6 years respectively.

The firm has grown consistently since 2008 with clients attracted by a wide range of services, commercial success and customer-focused delivery, managed by an experienced team of directors and senior surveyors handling client relationships on a day-to-day basis.

We offer a service that initially involves assessing the potential for a reduction. If a reduction appears to be justified, Ashley Smith will prepare and submit an appeal on behalf of a client.

This can result in a non-domestic rate account being adjusted or alternatively a refund may be granted from the Local Authority.
