About Us

Based in Corby and operating throughout Northamptonshire and the surrounding counties. The two partners of Ferguson Broadbent have over 45 years experience in a broad spectrum of property related matters. Our track record in supporting land and property owners in the rural and agricultural communities is second to none.

We pride ourselves on giving exceptional service and will take time to fully discuss your requirements to enable us to provide a viable solution to your circumstances.

Our terms are simple.

For our professional, traditional services, we offer competitive fees on a time recorded, capped or fixed price basis.

For more specialised pylon compensation or compensation claims against utility companies if we do not achieve a completed settlement for you, we make no charge whatsoever. Significantly, and for absolute peace of mind, we can assure you that the cost of our services, and all reasonable legal fees needed to finalise a settlement, are paid entirely by the commissioning authority or utility company delivering the project.


Mark Ferguson Bsc M.R.I.C.S – Chartered Surveyor

After graduation from the Royal Agricultural College in 1995 Mark assisted with management of the Duke of Buccleuch’s Boughton Estate and the Thurlow Estate owned by the Vestey family in Suffolk. Mark qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in 1997 and since 2002 has worked in private practice specialising in planning and development consultancy, compulsory purchase and compensation, commercial rating matters and the sale and acquisition of farms and development land – all of which require focus on detail and the client’s individual requirements. Maximisation of benefit or return to his clients is Mark’s overriding goal.
