Professional Services – Ribble Valley

Many people associate Armitstead Barnett with rural property and land sales, however, as a business we are founded and led by Rural Chartered Surveyors having vast knowledge and expertise in all land and property, covering all rural matters across the Ribble Valley.  This includes Landlord and Tenant matters, managing schemes involving utility and infrastructure projects, assessing rural and agricultural grant funding opportunities on behalf of farmers and land managers and completing professional valuations for a range of purposes.

Being born and bred in the Hodder Valley, I have been surrounded by our wonderful landscape all my life and understand the rural matters impacting the sector and area for which we operate.  Our landscape is crisscrossed with rural estates and privately rented land and property of all sizes and character, and we assist both Landlords and Tenants regarding tenancy matters and rural property management.

Miles of utilities (including water/gas pipelines and electricity) also intersect the regions agricultural land, with numerous water pipelines travelling down from the Bowland Fells, Lake District and Stocks Reservoir to feed to the larger conurbations surrounding the borough.  As demand on services within the region continues, we act for numerous landowners and occupiers regarding the continued utility infrastructure being upgraded or installed, ensuring all legal rights and procedures are followed and landowners are compensated fully.  On a similar note, we are also seeing upgrades to road infrastructure, with the widening of bypasses or the creation of new road junctions to ease congestions.  We act for numerous landowners and occupiers in representing interests during the Compulsory Purchase of such assets, to help mitigate the impacts and provide best representation. 

Being specialised agricultural and rural valuers, we complete a large range of valuation work for all purposes, including Estate Planning, Probate/Taxation, Property Disputes and Secured Lending.  We also assist agricultural businesses to gain finance for continued growth and investment through the Agricultural Mortgage Corporation (AMC).  Grants and Subsidies also form an important area for the agricultural and rural sector, and we advise and assist with rural funding applications including the Sustainable Farming Incentive and Capital Grants.

Whether the matter is small or large, we provide assistance and advice regarding all rural property and land matters.  For further information, please get in touch.
