Property Sales & Acquisitions
We sell and acquire properties for clients ranging from landed estates and farms to country cottages. We have sold and purchased property on behalf of clients throughout the British Isles.
We manage both commercial forestry plantations and amenity woodlands; our expertise ranges from timber harvesting to tree planting. We advise on woodland grant schemes and have an excellent working relationship with the Forestry Commission. We also have strong links with many timber contractors and operators throughout the country.
We help owners and their advisors appraise current management strategies, identify areas that need change, make recommendations and, if required, help implement them. This can be done on a one-off or regular basis.

We have a wealth of experience in preparing and managing agri-environment schemes in both upland and lowland habitats. Whilst the application process can be daunting, most schemes offer good environmental and financial returns. We have an excellent working relationship with the relevant government agencies.
We are one of the leading experts in the management of upland and lowland sporting estates and manage some of the most prolific grouse moors in the country. Importantly, we advise on health and safety issues relevant to all sporting disciplines including shooting, fishing and stalking. We have a wealth of sporting contacts throughout the UK.
