Practical Advice For Homeowners And Farmers

Galbraith join forces with NFU Mutual to advise homeowners and landowners in South West Scotland on asset management and financial planning.

The free event will take place on 10th October in Ayr and topics covered will include asset protection, valuations, building reinstatement costs, pensions and inheritance tax planning.

Paul Glover, chief investment manager for NFU Mutual and Sean McCann, technical advice manager for NFU Mutual will be joined by David Corrie of Galbraith, a partner, land agent and chartered surveyor.

David Corrie says that landowners ultimately need practical advice:

The first step in successful asset protection is to fully understand the value of the land and buildings that you own and ensure that you are adequately insured. Many of us underestimate the reinstatement costs that could be incurred should the worst happen but more importantly it is useful to have a full overview of one’s financial and practical liabilities in order to properly plan for the future.

Increasingly, our clients are taking a holistic view of their assets in order to gain a better understanding of how to manage land and buildings more effectively. Capital investment, asset maintenance and succession planning are interlinked, with decisions made now impacting on future income and potential liabilities.

David Corrie manages the firm’s Castle Douglas office where he oversees all estate agency, sales and valuation activity for property in Dumfries and Galloway. The Castle Douglas office offers agricultural valuations, both for the AMC, for whom David is a registered introducer, and a number of other banks. 

Galbraith has grown significantly in recent years, with fourteen offices covering Scotland and Northern England.
