Estate Management


We are actively involved in the management of estates of varying sizes, from small charitable trusts to large agricultural estates and enterprises in excess of 5,000 acres, with a diverse range of tenants and multiple let properties. We offer full management and/or consultancy services advising estate owners in management decisions, enabling them to formulate policies to match their objectives, maximise returns and for estate/tax planning purposes. We can provide advice and assistance on, landlord and tenant, land management matters, legislation, grants and subsidies, and more.

Compensation Issues


Our wide experience and up-to-date knowledge allows us to successfully negotiate appropriate compensation for our clients following the acquisition, severance, disturbance and/or injurious affection of land by public utilities.

Farm Reorginisation


In the fast-changing world of agriculture, we are able to provide advice to maximise potential in tax-efficient ways for the many situations that might arise over a generation. This may include letting under a modern Farm Business Tenancy (FBT), Contracting Arrangements or Share Farming.

We offer a range of letting/contract farming services to help our clients comply with the Agricultural Tenancies Act and reduce their fixed costs. These include initial appraisal of all options, advising on likely returns, preparing tender proformas and documenting the arrangement. We work closely with consultants who can administer larger-scale farm management agreements. 

Landlord and Tenant Matters


With comprehensive knowledge of agricultural law and the local market, we can advise on tenancy matters including rental, valuations and cost-effective methods of settling reviews.

Dispute Resolution


Dispute resolution is a growing area with a greater emphasis placed on alternative dispute resolution by the courts and other professional bodies. We are well versed in the widening aspects of this subject with many of our Chartered Surveyors appointed as experts in court and arbitration proceedings.
