The Maughan Mitchell Team 2023

Maughan Mitchell celebrated 30 years in 2022, having been established in 1992 by Simon Maughan with Chris Mitchell joining in 2010, from Lambert Smith Hampton, bringing expertise in Lease Advice and Property Management. Chris had previously been a founding partner in Holland Mitchell, which LSH acquired.

He had a brief spell in 2008/09 heading Lambert Smith Hampton’s South Coast rating division, prior to opting to revert to independent status and forming the current Practice of ‘Maughan Mitchell’.

Simon is now considered one of the foremost rating surveyors in the region with considerable expertise gained over many years of practice in this sector and having successfully dealt with some very substantial cases.
