Our Estates & Farm Agency Department handles the sale and purchase of farmland, residential and commercial farms, and sporting estates throughout the UK.
Using national expertise and detailed local knowledge to advise clients, the teams are supported by our Farming Department and other departments within the firm to help clients with everything from Single Payment issues and farming schemes to taxation and planning.
There continues to be a very strong market for farms and farmland from a wide variety of purchasers. Arable land has increased in value from an average of £2750 per acre in 2006 to over £8000 an acre today. Grassland has seen similar gains. No wonder then that land is in demand but supply is dwindling.
The averages mask considerable variations with commercial arable land values varying from £5,500 to over £12,000 per acre - not just from region to region or county to county, but sometimes even parish to parish - knowing the market, where buyers are moving from and to, and what they want and don't want, guarantees getting the best possible price or securing a purchase.
Expert advice from dedicated teams
We have 20 dedicated agents located from Banchory and Inverness in the north of Scotland to Exeter in the South West and Canterbury in the South East. The combined knowledge of national and local land values and farming issues puts us in an unrivalled position to advise farmers and landowners.
In acting for buyers, we are often able to identify opportunities not on the open market and are able to advise on the future farming structure, including farmland reports and cash flows.
