The management of landed estates has changed significantly over the last decade. In order to prosper in a highly competitive market estates have changed from passive owners, collecting rents, into active asset managers of property investment businesses.

Thomas Westcott act for landed estates over the South West of England and have the expertise to provide a full range of services. We can deal with the commercial issues involved with the management of agricultural, residential and commercial portfolios. Our agricultural consultancy team can provide valuable help on the in hand management of farming units. We are fully versed in dealing with the nuances of shoots, other sporting rights and woodlands.

Our tax department has wide experience of handling capital tax planning – particularly IHT and CGT; dealing with the complexities of family trusts and specialist areas such as renewable energy investments. Maintenance of the estate through well planned succession needs to be balanced with keeping the estate on a sound commercial footing. We are always very conscious of fitting planning work to the family requirements, rather than fitting the family to the planning.

We at Thomas Westcott are experienced at preparing accounts for landed estates. We are well versed in incorporating the often differing requirements of the estate, bringing together the various activities and ownerships.
