2020 entitlement trading overview 

Despite the many challenges the start of this year has thrown at us, we have sold a respectable number of entitlements and have seen a continuous stream of enquiries to buy and sell throughout the trading window. 

We started off trading at £125/Ha for English NON-SDA Entitlements, which held steady for a good few weeks, but the market gradually dropped down to £110 – £115/Ha and less for larger blocks. 

If you are looking to sell or buy entitlements, please give the office a call so we can add you to our register for the 2021 trading window.

Dispersal sales 

2020 has seen a number of farm dispersal sales held by Rostons, starting with a hugely successful sale close to Wrexham in early January, where it was great to see so many faces, some of which had clearly travelled a long way!

We had other successful sales including a Collective sale at Dutton with a magnificent range of all types of plant and machinery and then we enjoyed a traditional farm dispersal sale close to Tarporley in March.

Whilst there was an active calendar moving through April and May planned, sales have been put on hold due to the Covid-19 restrictions. 

We are now looking at alternative possibilities such as online timed auctions or as soon as possible, the return to traditional farm sales, provided social distancing is adhered to by the buyers. 

If you are considering an auction or sale then please contact Andrew Wallace.

Compensation

Rostons fight for your rights

Despite the current situation, we have seen a resurgence in Utilities and Public Works has led to more involvement for clients of the Rostons Team.

Compensation is always payable where damage and loss are caused by any third party taking access to land which you occupy, invariably this access is taken by the Utilities, such as gas, electric, water, but can be private sewage connections, private Rights of Way and a number of other such activities, we are also seeing increased use of Compulsory Purchase powers for new infrastructure projects, from footpath widening to new road and rail projects.

Recent new instructions include access by water and electricity companies for maintenance and emergency repairs and the resulting loss of crop, drainage issues arising from blocked highways drains on the M6 and a tenant who’s land is being compulsory acquired for a new footpath and cycleway. 

If you believe you are affected by any schemes where compensation is likely to be payable, then please contact the Rostons Team for advice. Invariably fees are paid for by the acquiring authority, so our advice and assistance do not cost you anything!
