Prestigious and long established estate agency chain Knight Frank is to close its Liverpool offices at Horton House, necessitating the redundancy of staff there.

It is amalgamating its North West operation into one premises, at Manchester.

This adds to the tally of local estate agents closing their doors as the vast majority of buyers continue to search via the internet for their next property rather than traipsing around High Street shop premises.
