Our Land Services

Rural Land & Business

Rural Land & Business

Our service is very personal. Through all our dealings we never lose sight of the individuality of our clients. Perhaps not surprisingly, some of the biggest landowners in the country have retained Carter Jonas for many years.

Farms Land & Estate Sales

Farms Land & Estate Sales

In estate sales management, the reassurance that comes from instructing a respected firm counts for everything. When you need advice, you want to be secure in the knowledge that you are speaking with an expert in their field.

Compensation for Compulsory Purchase

Compulsory purchase is probably the most draconian power available to the state against an ordinary citizen. We all enjoy the benefits of the infrastructure it provides, but, for those affected, the process is typically drawn out, uncertain and frequently life-changing.

Development Land

Development Land

Our professionals have a proven track record in identifying development opportunities, and advising on appropriate strategies to realise optimum value before bringing properties to the market.
