It is with great sadness we report the sudden death of Michael Packard on Wednesday June 1st 2022.

The family are working through his affairs, and as such, no trading is possible that would usually have occurred through Michael himself, however some books are still available from his distributors.

For anything urgent, email   but please be aware that this address is infrequently monitored.

Your patience and understanding will be appreciated through this difficult period.

The well-tried format of this successful book, first published in 1987, remains the same but the new fourth edition contains a complete revision of its content and is updated to mid-2003. A new co-author, whose subject is law, has joined the editorial team. Chapters that incorporate substantial change are those on tenure legislation and environment grants and organizations.

As before, this book provides an overview of land managerial topics for those starting out to work on farms and estates and in land agency. Also it is useful for those in allied professions such as accountancy, banking and finance, valuation, law and taxation. Students at colleges and universities will find the book to be required reading in their course work, and younger members of land or estate agencies will refer to it while preparing for their chartered surveyor examinations.
