Head of Estates & Farm Agency
Our Estates & Farm Agency Department handle the sale and purchase of residential and commercial farms, farmland and country and sporting estates throughout the UK.
Strutt & Parker have been at the forefront of the estates and farms market for over 125 years, handling all types of sale and purchase from pony paddocks and commercial dairy farms, to best in class, trophy estates.
We have over 20 specialist local agents located across England and Scotland as well as our national teams based in our London and Edinburgh offices. All of our agents are experienced in this specialist market and offer a combination of detailed local and market knowledge and national and international perspective.
Our dedicated agents deal only with farms and estates, and have unrivalled experience in the market. We have in depth knowledge of past, current and likely-future sales and are often able to identify opportunities that are not on the open market, or in the public domain. The ability to secure a property quickly and discreetly without the market becoming aware is often extremely attractive to our clients and an exciting challenge for us.
As part of the buying service, we identify opportunities (both on and off market), provide valuation advice, identify any potential pitfalls, negotiate the price and manage the input of lawyers and accountants to ensure a smooth and stress free purchase for our clients. If required, we can advise on the future farming structure of the purchase, including farmland reports and cash flows. We can also manage the whole process and take on future management of the property.
If you would prefer personalised, bespoke buying service with a dedicated, specialist covering both the residential, farms or estates market, we strongly recommend our independent buying consultancy, Private Property Search who have dedicated teams across the Country.
