RYDER & DUTTON is an independent firm of Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents, established in Deansgate - Manchester in 1919. In post-war years, the firm has not only expanded its office base, but has also established a number of specialist departments to meet the requirements of constantly changing legislation and the need for a high degree of technical knowledge.

The practice is controlled by its Directors who are either Chartered Surveyors which is the recognised professional institution dealing with land and buildings or members of the National Association of Estate Agents. The present Directors have both the experience and expertise necessary to advise on any property matter, and its clientele are assured of a completely independent approach where our philosophy has always been our client comes first.

We have a wide client base, which ranges from major insurance companies, banks, building societies, trusts, public limited companies and individual clients, all of whom are assured of a personal service on all instructions, no matter how large or small. Although most of our instructions are concentrated in the North West , our specialist departments are frequently involved in giving advice on properties throughout the United Kingdom.
