The article presents pieces of advice for clients who are wishing to sell farms located in the southern part of Devon, England. The area is renowned traditionally for its small private landlord and tenant estates and traditional farming family units. Demand has been fueled by the non-farmer for smaller land lots. Sale must be by competitive means using either auction or tender.
