A professional overview of the management of rural property based on two case studies, supported by input from surveyors in practice. The two case studies focus on farm agency and compulsory purchase with elements of building management. Each case study introduces some new technical material to be applied, within a theoretical and conceptual framework with which students are already familiar, in situations likely to be encountered by the rural surveyor. One case study requires teamwork to produce valuation advice in a professional report and oral presentation.
To achieve credit for this module, students must be able to:
- Analyse the market for rural land and property, and understand the legal and professional framework within which instructions for sale are undertaken.
- Understand and apply the principles of compensation for the compulsory purchase of rural property.
- Give advice to owners and occupiers of rural buildings on the management of such buildings.
- Apply the above, together with previously learned areas of skill and knowledge, to practical problems in rural land management; and
- Present information and advice in a clear and concise manner, both verbally and in written form.
