We provide advice to clients who are
- Looking to purchase an additional farm or estate
- Looking to purchase bare land
- Investment purchasers of farms, estates and bare land
- First time/non farming buyers of farms, estates and bare land
- Clients affected by infrastructure and utility works
Advice provided can comprise purchase values, ingoing valuations, likely returns, land productivity, budgets, business plans and assisting in the borrowing process. Valuations can be prepared to RICS standards to assist with purchase negotiations, internal business restructuring or tax and financial planning.
We can also provide further farm and estate management services or consultancy advice on a successful purchase, and help negotiate the myriad of farm and estate administration, subsidies, grants, staff wages and related legislation.
The firm has acted for our farming and landowning clients in a variety of situations where compensation was due. This experience includes compensation for crop loss due to pipelines, water pipes and electricity cabling, wind turbine routes, compulsory purchase for roads and railways, disturbance and also profits foregone as a result of existing infrastructure affecting business performance, machinery failure and contractor negligence. Electricity wayleaves, servitudes and telecom negotiations also form part of the services provided by the firm.
It is normal for the acquiring authority to pay reasonable professional fees and expenses, resulting in added value for our clients at no cost to them.
