Topical Tips for Estate Managers

    Savills Estate Management Team bring their 5 top tips to your attention on issues and liabilities that may affect rural estates at the current time.

    • 1. FINANCIAL - Ten year Trust Charge, remember to check dates for tax planning and payment as this will affect cash flow.
    • 2. TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP – If you are considering transferring ownerships of commercial property from one owner to another then it may be appropriate to do it now whilst values are low.
    • 3. SALE & LEASEBACK – Have you considered sale and leaseback to realise capital for investment elsewhere on the estate?
    • 4. WOODLAND - Be vigilant for tree diseases including the highly destructive Chalara dieback of ash trees as we approach the new growing season.
    • 5. FIREWALLS – when reroofing, firewalls must be installed where appropriate – many old properties do not have them. Where semi-detached or terrace a fire wall is needed to separate loft space.

    If you would like any further information regarding any of the points raised above please do not hesitate to contact Mark Egar, head of Estate Management.
