Professionalism and Expertise in the Agricultural and Rural Property Sectors

Acorn Rural Property Consultants is a dynamic and forward thinking firm of Chartered Surveyors and Land Agents specialising in the agricultural and rural property sectors. Over the years we have developed a reputation for professionalism and expertise. Please browse our services for more information.

Our aim is to build long term relationships with our clients and their other professional advisers to ensure that we understand their needs and can help to achieve their objectives. This is reflected in a high level of repeat instructions and personal referrals. Our clients range from large property owning organisations and private estates to family farmers, developers and private individuals.

We have particular expertise in planning and development, including permitted development rights and planning enforcement; agricultural tenancies; dispute resolution; expert witness and arbitration work. We publish regularly in the farming press and contribute to the work of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and other professional organisations.

We welcome enquiries from clients, prospective clients and their advisers and are always happy to have an initial discussion without any obligation to establish how we may be able to help.

We are regulated by RICS for the provision of surveying services. This means we agree to uphold the RICS Rules of Conduct for Firms and all other applicable mandatory professional practice requirements of RICS and comply with the RICS client money protection scheme. As an RICS regulated firm we have committed to cooperating with RICS in ensuring compliance with its standards. Mark Sanders is the firm’s nominated RICS Responsible Principal.
