Meet the Cardiff team


Jeremy Rawlins and Paul Madley have more than 80 years combined experience as Chartered Surveyors operating in South Wales which has enabled them to establish a wide knowledge of the South Wales property market with particular relevance to their specialism in residential development land opportunities coupled with an extensive client base.

Jeremy and Paul will join Herbert R Thomas as Consultants and will be operating principally from their Cardiff office supported by Directors James Mordecai and Matthew Wright.

 “We have always enjoyed a particularly good relationship with the Directors of Herbert R Thomas and there is a significant degree of synergy between our two practices.  The ever-increasing time that it takes to bring planning and development schemes to fruition has caused us to think about the succession process, and as much as we would like to, we cannot go on forever.  The merger with Herbert R Thomas ensures continuity of a professional service for all our existing and future clients.”
