The Crown Estate has completed the sale of its Bryanston Estate with a UK Company that will hold the estate on behalf of Viscount Rothermere and his son the Hon Vere Harmsworth.
The Bryanston Estate was purchased in 1950 from the Portman family by The Crown Estate. The acquisition is part of the new purchasers long term strategy to diversify their investment holdings and completion of the sale is scheduled for the end of September 2015.
The nature of tenancies for all tenants is protected as part of this transaction although, of course, the identity of the landlord will change upon completion. Savills incorporating Smiths Gore will continue to act as managing agents for The Crown Estate and remain responsible for the on-going management until that time, the tenants day-to-day point of contact will not change. Tenants are currently being informed in writing and through personal visits by our managing agents, local and regional press will also be notified.

Forum Focus no longer delivered.
The Forum Focus Magazines will no longer be delivered to homes in Bryanston. It is believed that many people in the village collect them from other points or have them delivered with their newspapers. In future you will be able to pick up a copy from Bryanston Club. Copies will still be sent to the school for residents. Forum Focus is available on line www.forumfocus.co.uk .
