Working with private and institutional land & estate owners our rural property consultants enhance value and streamline the day-to-day management of your rural assets. Knight Frank's Rural Asset Mnanagment department provides expert advice on all aspects of rural property in the UK. The depth of expertise is provided through a number of service lines which cover all aspects of Strategic Consultancy, Property Management, Renewables and Marine.
Strategic planning is fundamental to successful management and asset performance. Many of our rural property specialists have either a farming or estate background, equipping them with the experience and expertise needed to steer rural asset profitability on course. We explore every possible avenue to maximise the value or output of rural property helping your business improve through the highest quality bespoke advice. Bolstered by our research team, our experts produce industry-leading reports and access the latest information on agricultural land values, legislation and analysis of the issues affecting rural property ownership and farming in the UK.
Strategic work can be carried out on a one off or a regular basis; using the latest technology and drawing on leading rural market research we measure performance against industry benchmarks, targeting areas that may need improvement. In some cases, individual components of an estate can be addressed, or a complete appraisal may be required.
Renewable energy can deliver significant new income streams for landowners. But in a sector where technology, government policy and financial support are in flux, expert and trusted advice is vital to maximise the potential returns on investment from renewable energy. The majority of rural properties, due to their location and often historical nature, will require bespoke renewable energy solutions. Our specialists can appraise your property and provide advice on which technologies would be sensible for your circumstances and how they might work for you.
Our Renewables Team delivers innovative renewable energy solutions to some of the UK’s leading rural landowners and developers. As the world’s leading independent property business we also have access to a wide range of complementary expertise, including Planning, Mapping and Building Consultancy teams.
Our Renewables Team has experience in the following technologies and areas:
