Lucy Worrall has worked with us for over the last 7 years. In this time she has offered a range of services which include working with us on our development programme, asset management programme and shared ownership sales.
Lucy has always offered an excellent level of service meeting and often surpassing deadlines. The level of knowledge and support provided to us has been exceptional and through her advice she has helped to minimise any risks to our organisation.

Assistant Director of Development
Thank you for your assistance on another complex anti-social behaviour case on which you assisted both my colleague and I. You were professional and well organised allowing for the court process to run flawlessly. As always you were easy to make contact with, giving immediate responses and supportive yet helpful advice. We look forward to working with you on future cases.
Forbes are professional, reliable, knowledgeable and efficient. I have recently worked with their plot sales team on a number of shared ownership sales and they understand the sector, are efficient and responsive and have pushed the sales through quickly. I can recommend them. They have also taken the trouble to come and see us to talk through the set up for sale on a scheme, including looking in detail at the plans, service charge and other arrangements to ensure that the sales go through without problems; and that the shared ownership lease is properly tailored to the scheme.
The level of knowledge and support provided to the Trust has been exceptional and through her advice Lucy has helped to minimise any risks to our organisation.
