A well-known Stockton office block previously used by Churchill Insurance has been snapped up by a local finance firm.
Quickly Finance, which manages claims for mis-sold Payment Protection Insurance (PPI) and Packaged Bank Accounts (PBA), is relocating staff from its operations at Christine House on Teesdale Business Park and from Billingham into Churchill House.
Previously housing the contact centre for Churchill Insurance, Churchill House is a 33,000 sq ft, self-contained, high specification, four-storey office block, with 184 on-site car parking spaces, in a prominent location at Teesdale, overlooking the central basin.
Acting on behalf of the Official Receiver, Middlesbrough-based Dodds Brown completed the sale to Quickly Finance.
Dodds Brown senior partner Stephen Brown said: “With its location on the stunning River Tees waterfront site, easy access via the A66 and A19, generous car parking and its on-site facilities, it’s no surprise that Quickly Finance saw the opportunity to consolidate its operations at Teesdale Business Park.
“The disposal of Churchill House further reduces the availability of high quality accommodation at Teesdale Business Park, particularly of freehold buildings, but there are still opportunities for organisations to rent and purchase space there.”
From its offices in Middlesbrough, Dodds Brown is the largest independent commercial property surveying practice headquartered on Teesside and has been trading for more than 125 years.
