what we offer
Sales and acquisitions
Through our network of offices across the country, we provide specialist sales and marketing of equestrian properties. Our online equestrian search facility also provides a great way to find your perfect property.
Our letting experts can help you with everything from lease sales through to rent reviews. We are experienced in preparing letting agreements for equestrian enterprises, stables, pony paddocks, grazing and other facilities. We take considerable care to ensure that the legal and tax positions of both landlords and tenants are well protected.
Our rural planning surveyors can advise on a range of planning issues, from the construction of stables to outdoor riding arenas and establishing ‘change of use’ from agriculture to equestrian.
Humberts is the appointed planning consultant for the National Farmers’ Union for South West England.
We undertake professional valuations of equestrian enterprises for a variety of purposes, including:
• Bank loans and lending security
• Matrimonial disputes
• Landlord and tenants
• Compulsory purchase and compensation
As a result of increasing numbers of appeals against business rates levied on the equestrian industry, we have a dedicated rating department to help with such appeals and advise on available reliefs that may be available.
At Humberts, we sponsor various sporting activities and sportsmen and women, which reflects our deep involvement and interest in the rural and equestrian communities.
As an example, flat Jockey Martin Harley, who carries the Humberts name on his breeches and polo neck every time he rides in a race, has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the big time, winning top races, such as the Irish 1,000 guineas.
All of his races are televised, either on Channel 4 or the racing channels, and he rides for some of the highest profile racehorse owners and trainers.
Martin is proud to be sponsored by Humberts. Watch out for him on Channel 4 and in the national and racing press.
