A family-run company based out of our offices in Holmes Chapel, Mendy & Watt offers comprehensive Estate Planning services to both private clients and businesses. From Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Trust planning, through to Probate, how Care might be funded, Property Ownership and Funeral Planning, as well as Business Continuity & Succession Planning for businesses. We help to bring peace of mind to our clients when making provision for whatever the future may hold.
As Open House Estate Agents East Cheshire we offer a ‘boutique’ service for residential property Sales & Lettings, bringing the same expertise, professionalism and warmth to our clients that we do in the other areas of our business. In an industry that sometimes attracts a somewhat dubious reputation, people love to deal with us for our integrity and approachability, going the extra mile to ensure their buying, selling, and renting experience is as rewarding and stress-free as possible. The Estate Agency side was born out of our initial specialism in Probate properties (when someone has died) and whilst we are still unrivalled in this area, our service has extended to encompass all kinds of residential property Sales & Lettings in East Cheshire to become the business it is today.

What Do Our Clients Say?
Managing Director – Space 48 Limited
I’ve worked with Wendy for a number of years and she has consistently provided an excellent service, especially in employee healthcare and personal financial advice. Wendy’s depth of knowledge, unbiased opinions and friendly approach have enabled me to confidently make informed choices about the products on offer, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and her team.
Running my business takes up most of my time and energy therefore, I need great people around me to guide me with things I don’t know much about but understand is really important. Wendy’s background of having run a large manufacturing plant for over 20 years means she has been on my side of the boardroom table and so gives very practical and straight talking advice. Mendy & Watt look after my business protection needs as well as personal cover and we simply review everything each year to ensure what we have in place is still appropriate and update it if necessary. We are now at the stage where we get together annually, review and then I get on with running my business! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services and on-going support – they’ve looked after me since 2014.
