Savills Dedicated Purchasing Service

    Buying land and farms can be a drawn-out process - with ownership of farms and estates tightly held, there are limited opportunities available. Add in that a significant proportion is traded privately, and it is clear that successful buyers need to have an edge over the competition.

    That is where Savills dedicated purchasing service comes into its own. We know what land and farms are coming to the market – privately or otherwise, and understand the needs of both seller and purchaser to ensure an easy and effective transaction.

    We purchased nine properties for our clients in Scotland alone last year, ranging from small areas to extend clients’ farms to large estates. Our experience and relationships put buyers in the most advantageous position, whether they are farmers, estate owners, institutional and private investors, or lifestyle buyers. 

    In most cases clients will be buying a business, and the issues can be complex, affecting the value and enjoyment of the property. Searching for the right property can be time consuming and costly, but having a specialist purchasing team with excellent local knowledge and understanding of rural businesses can address these issues up front, and take out unnecessary legwork.

    As well as advising on the best purchasing strategy, we screen each property to ensure it meets our clients’ needs. In addition, we provide a confidential and professional service with the back up of all necessary specialists within one firm, including planners, building consultancy, tax and funding advice.

    In a competitive market, vendors give greater credence to buyers represented by an agent, as they are more likely to be ready to proceed and complete the deal.
