Farm & Equestrian in Rutland and The Shires

Not all our work at Stacks involves a straightforward residential property purchase.  At Stacks – Rutland we have been involved in the acquisition and negotiation of varying forms of property:

One of the advantages of rural living is additional space.  When looking for a property with equestrian facilities you may be looking for a small paddock with outbuildings to convert to a stable.  You may be looking for private stabling with paddocks for personal use, or you may be looking for a business opportunity with a livery yard or equestrian centre.

Rutland and the surrounding counties are home to some of the world’s top event riders.  Melton Mowbray is home to the military equine training squadron which provides horses for the Household Cavalry division. There are numerous pony clubs and riding schools throughout the area teaching riding to all ages.  In short this is a haven for all equestrian activity without the budget requirements of Lambourn or Newmarket.

Stacks – Rutland can help you find your next equestrian property and with our expert knowledge can help you avoid the pitfalls inherent with purchase of property with land.

There are going to be many changes in UK agriculture over the next decade.  Following the anticipated UK exit from the European Union in 2020 many people are worried about the future of the Single Farm Payment currently received by farmers across the country.  For those with a minimum of 5 hectares who registered for entitlements the payments have been a very important factor in financial planning within agricultural business.  From 2023 these payments will be phased out and replaced by the new Environmental Land Management Scheme.

Despite the uncertainties to farming and agriculture, we can all agree that land is the one thing we cannot make more of. There is a real and continuous demand for farm land.

Stacks – Rutland can help with the search, negotiation, and acquisition of farmland.

The shortage of housing in the UK is well documented and the UK government has implemented a program led by Homes England to provide more housing including affordable homes.  It is estimated that around 340,000 homes will need to be built every year for a decade to meet the demand.

This proposed housing development may or may not promise to provide you with your dream home.  However, we have heard from many clients who dream of buying a plot of land to build the perfect home. Whether you are looking for a plot of greenfield to develop, looking to purchase a self-build plot, considering a larger project with the aim of developing multiple residential or commercial units, we can offer an inside track to opportunites. 

Stacks – Rutland is well positioned in the real estate industry with extensive local knowledge and contacts.
