Fenn Wright have been land agents for over 250 years and are highly regarded as the rural property experts in Essex and Suffolk.
Rural land and property assets cover a wide range of property types, each with their own unique opportunities. We know that effective and efficient management of these assets requires a balanced approach to maintain profitability – and we’re here to help.
Our Farms & Estates team is headed up by David Ward, MRICS, a Partner at Fenn Wright and experienced Rural Surveyor who lives in Suffolk. David specialises in all aspects of rural land and property and advises clients on a range of matters including management, professional services and agency.
As Chartered Surveyors, we work with private individuals, corporate clients and institutions to buy, sell and rent rural property and land in East Anglia. Fenn Wright have developed a niche in both selling and purchasing land and farms off market, where we offer a confidential service and aim to ensure a positive outcome for our clients.
Over the years, Fenn Wright have been involved in managing a number of commercial and privately-owned estates in Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk. We appreciate the complexities of land ownership and are on hand to work alongside landowners, offering strategic advice to maximise the value of their assets.
Fenn Wright’s Farms & Estates team offer a broad range of professional services, including ‘red book’ valuations, advice on rent reviews, lease renewals and restructuring, planning and development and compulsory purchase.
David commented “We have seen the industry evolve over the past twenty years with many farmers looking to diversify their businesses to provide additional income streams and get the best return from their assets. Fenn Wright have worked with clients on a range of projects including development and strategic planning, renewable energy initiatives and environmental schemes, to name a few.”
As a multidisciplinary business, our Farms & Estates team work closely with colleagues in our Commercial, Residential and Water & Leisure divisions to provide expert advice and guidance.
