In the event that a valuation is required for matrimonial purposes we are able to provide detailed valuations of property and machinery as may be necessary. We are also able to provide expert witness reports either for individual parties or as jointly appointed expert for the court.

Partnership division

Over the years we have been involved in partnership divisions and have acted for both those wishing to continue farming and those who wish to leave. Our local knowledge of agricultural property values puts us in the best position to advise parties as to the value of assets and possible ways to divide them to the facilitate the parties requirements.


Durrants Auctions hold regular machinery sales throughout the year which ensure that we are fully aware of the current machinery process and trends. We are able to value a wide range of modern and vintage machinery and advise on disposal as may be required.


We act for buyers of all types of property, where a buyer needs professional valuation and practical advice regarding the pros and cons of a purchase. We often follow this advice through to the negotiation phase, putting forward offers and negotiating a deal with the selling agent. Many buyers find this helpful as in the agricultural world the buyers and sellers often know each other and having an intermediary can make a transaction run more smoothly.
