We wish to thank Julie Brandfield of Carver Knowles for the successful and professional way in which she obtained the Certification in removing all agricultural conditions on our property and land.Great job Julie
Carver Knowles and Julie in particular have done a fantastic hand holding exercise in what has been a difficult and complex planning application - November 2016
Mr & Mrs Hodgson
I want to thank you for your kind assistance in obtaining “permitted development” planning permission on the three barns. You clearly have a thorough knowledge of the workings of this government directive and you put that to good use on my behalf. I have battled with planners in the past to no avail and you seemed to do it all so simply. I cannot thank you enough for your very competent work.
Mr Tipton
A friend recommended contacting Carver Knowles as they had been successful in removing Ag Ties. To be completely honest we thought the chances of a successful outcome were slim but we had nothing to lose. After an initial consultation with Abi Baldrey we were far more positive that it may be possible to remove the Ag Tie. The process is very straight forward with the major bonus of not placing the property on the market, we now have an Ag Tie free property, we would recommend undertaking a consultation with Carver Knowles.
Mr & Mrs SmithPershore
We think the service offered by you was first class and delivered without false promises. Recommend others to try and lift agricultural ties.
R & L HoltPershore
So this means tie has been removed entirely and we have achieved it without having to do the one year marketing route etc? Well done, you must be very pleased with a 100% success rate. Few people are aware that this route exists and I will certainly recommend you to others. Congratulations!
Mr Scott-HopkinsCirencester
A million thanks for a job well done. At a stroke you have with quiet professionalism removed a problem which has been worrying me for some years. All the very best for the future.
