The issues which affect agricultural land can be diverse and complex.
If you are an individual or business operating in the rural sector, you face unique hurdles and opportunities. Evolving regulation, taxation and a changing economic environment bring new challenges alongside those of death, succession and divorce.
Since our beginnings over 70 years ago, we have advised a broad range of clients from the rural community, from new buyers of farms and estates to those diversifying into new sectors or disposing of land for development.
Through long-standing connections with land agents and professional advisers, an understanding of the issues central to ownership of rural land and a sympathetic and practical approach, we provide cohesive and commercial advice to our clients in the rural community.
Our expertise for land and estate owners includes:
Sales and purchases of land, farms, country houses and estates
Development work where there is potential for planning permission, including option agreements, promotion agreements and overage
Banking and other financing arrangements
