RICS/RAU Rural Market Survey - Call for Contributors
Many members will make use of the RICS/RAU Rural Market Survey, which is the longest running independent survey of land transactions in the rural market. The survey is produced half yearly and the survey team, which is led by Nick Millard at the RAU, is collecting data for the first 6 months of 2019 now for publication at the end of July.
The survey is in two parts:
- the list of transactions, which is of particular interest to practitioners; and
- the opinion survey which, conversely, is of interest to commentators and is an important tool in updating the non-specialist press and others on the rural land market.
Whilst contributors are still keen to submit transaction reports, for which the team are very grateful, responses to the opinion survey have fallen below the levels they were previously. The RAU Team hope that as many people as possible will respond to the survey, even if only in part, to improve the robustness and utility of the data. If you have not previously contributed to the survey but would like to do so please email RicsSurvey@rau.ac.uk and the Team will send you a link and add you to the circulation list.
