Her focus will be on the sale of land and rural property and also RICS valuations for loan security, probate, tax planning and other reasons, but will also be able to support the team in the management of a significant number of HS2 compensation cases, development work and general rural property advice.
Ashling has a degree in Rural Enterprise and Land Management from Harper Adams University, which included a year at Savills as an Assistant Rural Surveyor. Following graduation, Ashling worked at Andrew Granger & Co in Leicestershire (her home county) and, more recently, Carter Jonas in Northampton, becoming a qualified Rural Practice Chartered Surveyor (MRICS) and an RICS Registered Valuer. Among other areas, Ashling has gained valuable knowledge in agricultural tenancy matters, land management, RICS valuation work and property agency. With eight years of professional experience, Ashling joining the Rural team in Atherstone will be a great benefit in supporting rural practice clients across the region.
Of her new role, Ashling says: “Howkins & Harrison are a great firm, and I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to join them. They offer the best of both worlds – big enough to be influential, with an enormous level of experience across the team in a wide variety of roles, from planning to compensation, valuation to expert witness, yet maintaining a flat management structure that allows the teams to be nimble and responsive to their environment and the needs of their clients. I am very excited to get involved with projects across the spectrum, bringing my passion for providing straight talking solutions to the farming and land-owning community to this enthusiastic team.”
James Collier, Partner and head of Atherstone office, said; “Welcoming Ashling to the H&H team, specifically the Atherstone office, will enable us to spread our busy workload more efficiently and allow us take advantage of opportunities to develop more business and serve our existing clients more effectively. Her knowledge and passion are second to none and we are thrilled to have someone with such energy & enthusiasm join the team.”
