Guy Hurst

Consultant - Agricultural Land and Estates


Legal 500 Top Tier Firm 2021

I deal with all aspects of rural property and agriculture across England and Wales including:

  • the sale and purchase of farms, estates and rural property;
  • the sale and purchase of significant country houses;
  • agricultural tenancies; and
  • sporting rights.

I have been involved in some of the most high profile deals in recent years; whether the sale and purchase of landed estates, extensive grouse moors, sporting estates, commercial
working farms or prestigious country houses.

With the other members of the rural team, the firm can provide a one-stop legal service to the landowning client covering property, employment, tax advice, planning, divorce
etc.

Having qualified as a chartered surveyor in the Rural Practice Division of the RICS, I am able to bring practical hands on experience to the work I do.

I am a Liveryman and Past Master of the Worshipful Company of Farriers and have a keen interest in all things equestrian, having been a horse and pony judge for over 40
years.

I am a former Trustee of the Royal Agricultural Society of England.

Guy Hurst was recommended to me by another professional for a farm sale and subsequent property purchase. Guy was incredibly proactive and very responsive. Handling a relatively complex sale with confidence and providing support throughout the process. I would absolutely recommend Paris Smith to others.
