Lacy Scott & Knight is long established in the agricultural community of Suffolk and its neighbouring counties and is well respected for its experience and understanding of rural matters.
Our team, which has spent most of their working lives in the area and acquired detailed local knowledge, continues to build on this reputation, assisting and advising on a wide range of issues related to rural land and property.
Our qualified professionals of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV) and Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) can give expert assistance on all matters relating to sales and letting, planning and development, compensation issues, dispute resolution, farm reorganisation, estate management, finance and Single Farm Payments, including the latest EU regulations.
Through our involvement with and membership of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV), we can provide or obtain interpretation on the very latest European regulations, including those relating to the Single Farm Payment and other relevant matters under the Common Agricultural Policy, which is constantly evolving and the subject of regular review at a European level. Our CAAV-qualified experts are informed and updated with the changes as they occur.
We act in the sale and purchase of all types of rural property, from fully-equipped commercial farms to small holdings and agricultural land. We offer a full marketing service, which can include national advertising in Farmers Weekly, Farmers Guardian and other relevant publications, local advertising in the popular East Anglian press, as well as on our own website and other online coverage.
With our detailed knowledge of the local market and potential purchasers, we are also able to sell land discreetly at a minimum cost to our clients while securing full market price. Knowledge of the local market and extensive land transactions experience means that we are also able to provide valuable advice on purchasing opportunities.
