    Durrants celebrated 160 years in 2013 giving us an un-rivalled wealth of experience and expertise. Established in 1853 by George Durrant the company has developed into a multi-discipline firm that has excellent knowledge of the local area with departments covering residential sales and lettings, agricultural, commercial, on site auctions, planning and design, building surveying, auction rooms and holiday lettings.

     We are based in five locations throughout Norfolk & Suffolk (Diss, Harleston, Halesworth, Beccles and Southwold) and at the Mayfair Office in London.

    Whilst evolving and taking a modern approach in all aspects of the business, the firm has maintained its traditional family values and is now in its 5th generation with Nick Durrant at the helm. Our staff are enthusiastic, knowledgeable and receive regular training to provide a highly professional service. The proof of our success is the continual repeat business from our loyal clients.

    If you are looking for a property to purchase get in contact with us and let us know your requirements so that you do not miss out on properties coming to the market. Whatever your circumstances, if you are a first time buyer, or looking for an investment property, are upgrading/downsizing or are unfamiliar with the area we can help and offer professional advice with a personal and friendly service. Remember! As a purchaser you will need to pay stamp duty - the thresholds have recently changed and are as follows:

    New Rates to be paid on the part of the property that falls within each band.

    0 - £125,000     - 0%

    £125001 - £250,000   -2%

    £250001 - £925,000   - 5%

    £925001 - £1,500,000   - 10%

    £1,500,001 and over    - 12%

    We hope this clarifies the current Stamp Duty Land Tax rates , we are always available to discuss or assist if you would like our help.

    From the moment you offer on a property through us we are always on hand to assist with anything you need. However, even if you're not buying a property through us, Durrants can still help you with other services you may require.

    Our built environment team specialises in surveys, planning and architecture and design. Our residential department has a key contact list of trusted local solicitors and local removal firms.

    It is worth noting that we are not tied to any particular firms for financial gain like some other agents and therefore recommendations we give are completely impartial.

    We are also able to offer independent advice from a local financial advisor - please contact us for more information on this.

    Our motto is if we wouldn't recommend someone to our own families, we won't recommend them to you.
