A bit about me

I love the countryside and I’m always keen to see the rural economy succeed. As I grew up on a family farm, I know how important this way of life is to people. Farming is very much a business, but there are many other things specific to the industry to consider when helping support clients in this sector.

I work on all things ‘property’ – helping clients to buy, sell, let or mortgage land, farms and property. The people I represent range from farmers and landowners to landed estates and businesses. Whoever they are, I explain the legal paperwork clearly, making sure they understand exactly what they are doing and why. I take my time to find out what makes my client tick, and I ensure they understand everything before they sign it.

Outside of work, I enjoy being out in the countryside and spending time with my chocolate Labrador, Milly.

Want to know more?

There are no ‘stupid’ questions – always ask your solicitor to explain something if you don’t understand it.

Always speak to your professional advisers before you do anything, not afterwards. That way, you’ll have all the information you need before making a decision.

Never buy a property without having a survey – it’s important to know exactly what you’re buying before you complete.

How long is it going to take to sell my farm?

If you have a willing buyer, then a farm can be sold in 28 days.

How much is it going to cost?

Every transaction is different but I work on a fixed fee basis, so you’ll know the costs before we begin.
