Transactions with agricultural land raise a wide range of issues from land access to sporting rights, from timber to grant schemes. Add in the question of farm leases and farm workers’ cottages and there can be a complex mix. We are experienced in buying and selling farms and farm land by private sale and by auction.
We also deal with the many other rural issues, such as wayleaves and grants of rights for services to individuals or utilities undertakers, the negotiation of option agreements and development clawback.
We draft partnership agreements and liaise with accountants for estate and tax planning.
Diversification is still very much on the cards. We act in the grant of business leases where planning permission for change of use allows a new venture to take place on the farm either by the family or a third party. We have set up a large number of developments on farms for residential or commercial undertakings.
