Durham land agents just keep growing
4:28pm Friday 18th October 2013 in Farming
TWO years ago, H&H Land and Property, the largest firm of rural surveyors in the North-West, moved east and opened an office in Durham. The move for this Carlisle–based company was as a direct result of the growing demand for its services.
Now operating across the North of England, business continues to grow, resulting in increased staff numbers in the Durham office where Tim Sedgewick, Rebecca Stafford and Hannah Davies have joined the team.
H&H Land and Property is part of the H&H Group which earlier this month announced profits in excess of £1m. It offers a diverse range of services which includes estate management, sales and lettings, valuations, landlord and tenant and expert witness advice.
The company has an in-house resident planning team and specialist agricultural advisors.
The need for agri-business and planning advice is growing dramatically.
This year alone, H&H Land and Property has seen an increase in the number of farms for sale, and further developed its portfolio of estates to manage. The agricultural advisory service includes on-farm business management and estate management where a significant amount of land is retained in-hand. Mapping and GPS, option agreements with planning and development are the other key areas where the company is finding its advice is increasingly sought.
H&H has strong traditional values, combined with ambition for the future.
“Since we opened in Durham the business has grown exponentially, and with so many legislative changes effecting rural areas, we are anticipating this will continue,”
said David Quayle, the Durham-based director of H&H Land and Property. “Like agriculture itself, we believe in growing.”
Last year H&H Land and Property held a series of farm business seminars across the North-East to give farmers and landowners the latest updates affecting farming.
More such seminars are scheduled for this autumn.
