The article reports on the decline in rate of return from tenanted farmlands in Great Britain in 2005 according to property analyst IPD. Total return from let land was 9.4 percent compared with 18.5 percent in 2004. The decline was due to a slowdown in the increase in the residential value of estates. Consultant Desmond Hampton advises owners to sell any tenanted land unless it has potential for development.
