Agriculture and Rural

We can provide the support necessary to ensure smooth day to day running of your farm. This may cover a wide range of legal requirements.

We appreciate the need for proper arrangements to transfer the property from one generation to the next in the most tax efficient way and to maximise present and future tax advantages.

We have particular expertise in:

  • agricultural property and land
  • setting up trusts
  • on-going management of trusts.
  • the sale or letting of unoccupied houses and other buildings.
  • advising on occupancy arrangements
  • dealing with the imposition and subsequent variation and release of         restrictive covenants.
  • BPR and APR

Land Acquisition & Disposal

When dealing with an acquisition, we can provide a full report on matters affecting the holding including employee rights, water abstraction matters, sporting rights and farm cottages and the reservation of a share of future development value.

Agricultural Tenancies

Acting for either landlord or tenants we can advise on the creation of tenancy agreements.

Partnerships

There are a number of different trading structures which can be used by farms and we are able to advise on the practical and financial implications of these. In all cases we will advise how the adoption of a particular structure may impinge on existing arrangements such as family tenancies, wills and future provision for dependants
