About Us

Our growing business was established in 2001, by the team of partners who are running the practice today.

Our partners believed then, as they do now, that it takes more than luck to run a successful surveying practice.

It takes years of experience, hard graft and a genuine commitment to make our clients’ lives easier. Having worked together since the 1980s, our team has been through all the peaks and troughs of the market over the last 30 years, and is stronger because of our shared experiences. We succeed thanks to the unique, in-depth experience we have developed, and will continue to do so again.

We have refined our approach over the years as a result of what we’ve learned from our market place and valuable feedback from our clients. This experience enables us to swiftly solve problems and get the job done to the highest possible standard. We know our clients’ lives are busy, which is why we operate in a clear and transparent way that makes working with us a real pleasure.

We’re proud to be different and aim to delight our clients with our supportive, hands-on attitude. Learn more about our organisation by reading about our growth and meet the team that have made us what we are today.

What people say about working with us

  • "Being a local business in Colchester, we seek to establish relationships with local professionals in certain key areas of business. Morley Riches and Ablewhite are a professional friend of Handelsbanken and  understood from a very early stage what we were looking for from their reports. They  have been extremely prompt in their delivery  of valuations and more than happy to discuss all aspects of the property market within our catchment area, which we find very valuable.  Overall a pleasure to deal with."
    Russell Felstead, Handelsbanken
  • "Jon Ablewhite of Morley, Riches and Ablewhite has provided professional services to my company for many years. This has included sales, purchasing and renting of office properties in and around Colchester. He has been very professional and thorough, combining this with an understanding of the needs of a business client such as ourselves. Together with Peter Riches, he forms a very strong and likeable team."

I have always found them to be trustworthy, professional, responsive and accurate while offering a flexible approach to problem solving. They provide excellent value for money and also deliver additional value through their thorough knowledge and network.

MRA demonstrate empathy with corporate objectives, they manage customer relationships effectively and efficiently and work seamlessly as part of a team. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a professional property service."

We have also instructed Peter Riches to undertake a range of professional work on other properties in our portfolio including valuations, rent reviews, records of condition and schedules of dilapidation.  Again, we have always been pleased with the outcome and as a result have been happy to recommend him to other property owners known to us."
