Yopa, and online estate agency, sees one of its founding directors step down from his position.

Andrew Barclay’s appointment has been terminated, but he remains an active shareholder.

He was appointed on July 8, 2014, along with his cousin Alistair Barclay. Both are members of the family who own the Daily Telegraph.

A Yopa spokesperson said: “As Andrew Barclay is no longer involved in day to day operations for Yopa, he will no longer be on the board of directors and we have taken the routine administrative step to update our Companies House filing.

“Both Andrew and Alistair Barclay continue to be shareholders and are actively supporting the company in this role.”

Yopa’s backers include DMGT, the owners of the Daily Mail, plus Savills and LSL, which wrote down its investment of £20 million to £12.8 million in its accounts for last year. Savills’ stake is not known.
