The Valuation of Rural Property
Agriculture and the rural economy in general is becoming increasingly diversified. As a consequence, the land market is now more complex and uncertain than before. There has therefore been a growing need for a definitive guide to the principles and practice of rural property valuation.
Using his considerable experience in the rural property field, Peter Prag has filled this need and written a book that is a useful reference for all who are professionally involved with land, and which also provides a unique source of essential practical information for land management students.
To help readers find their way around the different aspects of rural property valuation, checklists are provided at the end of each chapter. A glossary of terms and a further check-list for non-agricultural surveyors and other professionals appear at the end of the book. Worked examples and graphs throughout the text illustrate points made.
