Rural properties and farms present their own specific needs as regards property clearance of the main farmhouse as well as farm vehicles, machinery, hazardous chemicals, organic matter, out-buildings, livestock barns, animal feed.
Farm clearance usually takes up to a few days where there is a main property as well as farm buildings but obviously this depends on the size of the property and land size.
Farmhouse Property Clearance for Probate
Farmhouses usually have several bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, large living and dining spaces, lofts and often cellars in other words, many rooms and functional spaces can be used up to the brim with furniture, household items and personal effects.
Older style farmhouse kitchens may house Agas and Rayburns, wood-burning stoves and fire-places. Chimneys may also need to be cleaned.
Furniture, furnishings, antiques, fine art, jewellery, coin collections, insignia and honour medals can all be professionally auctioned. Personal documents and legal papers and photographs are always checked and dealt with responsibly.
Property Clearance Farms/Outbuildings/Barns
Farms often have several outbuildings with farm vehicles, motor tools, gardening tools, hosing, animal tending equipment, stables, animal feeding barns and animal feed. Wood piles are also responsibly cleared.
Rural farm properties have often been in families for many generations and gathered many goods and chattels along the way. Clearing a farm thoroughly could take up to a few days, depending on the size.
Farm clearance for probate includes the residential farm as well the grounds and all the out-buildings and barns connected to the property.
Farm Property Clearance/ Livestock sheds/Hazardous Waste Removal
Farm outbuildings often house fertilisers, weed killers or herbicides, pesticides, liquid crop sprays and manure. All chemical fertilisers are considered hazardous waste and need special handling and removal. If the farm had livestock, then worming treatments may also need to be carefully disposed of.
Cattle sheds, horse stables, chicken coops and pig pens may also need to be thoroughly cleared as part of the property clearance. Scattered fences, collapsed rooves and fallen tiles may also be present.
Farm vehicles and equipment
One also needs to factor in clearing the grounds as they may have been left in a state of disrepair or abandonment for some time.
Farm vehicles often need to be valued for probate and farm equipment which includes tractors, mowing equipment, rotary tillers, cultipackers and harrows.
Often farms keep their own petrol and oil tanks especially if they are in isolated areas and these will also need special handling for removal along with any kerosene and diesel.
