The Modern-Day Estate Transaction – What has Changed?
12.05pm

Things have changed subtly over the years, in terms of how estates are bought and sold, and there is certainly a burgeoning market in estate consultancy services. Understand the changes and how best to adapt your approach to a transaction:

 

  • Changes in buyer profile over the years.
  • The 10 mistakes Boycie will have made had he bought something bigger… (aka pitfalls to avoid when buying an estate/country house).
  • Why to people buy?  (considering differing motives now that farming and landownership are not so heavily subsidized).
  • Uninhabitable dwellings… another trick for prospectors to rattle our clients.
  • Update on mixed use application (post 'Hyman').
