Chloe takes Top Spot in National Exam

Our Rural Surveyor Chloe Hayes has scored the highest mark in the country for the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers examination held in November 2020 involving up to 180 candidates.

The exam takes place over a demanding two days and comprises a practical, written and oral examination on a working farm and at an examination centre. The exam tests the candidates knowledge on a broad range of agricultural topics including agricultural practices, valuation, law, taxation, rights over land, development, landlord & tenant, professional practice and general knowledge of the countryside.

Passing the CAAV professional qualification is a huge achievement for a rural surveyor in their career and allows the use of FAAV after their name as a Fellow of the Association. The CAAV is the national specialist professional body representing, briefing and qualifying those acting and advising on agricultural and rural property and business matters across the whole of the United Kingdom.

Chloe says “I am very proud of myself to achieve this and all the hard work and revision has paid off. I would like to thank my colleagues at Stephensons Rural and CAAV tutorial groups for all their support leading up to the exams”.

On recognising the achievement, the CAAV will submit Chloe’s name to the Royal Agricultural Society of England for its Talbot Ponsonby prize for agricultural valuation.

Rod Cordingley has paid tribute to Chloe’s outstanding achievement, commenting: “This is fantastic news for Chloe who is a highly valued member of the Stephensons Rural team. Her top mark in the examination and submission for the Talbot Ponsonby prize is a reward for all her hard work and commitment. “

Well done Chloe!!
