Robin Beckley MA (Oxon)

Partner

I am a partner and head of the firm’s agriculture & estates team.

I work with a wide range of rural clients on a variety of matters, primarily of a transactional nature. My work ranges from the disposal and acquisition of agricultural land and related subsidies for farming clients, through to the disposal of agricultural land for development by option or promotion agreements and advice on overage agreements.

Working together with the litigation department should negotiations become contentious, I also deal with the partition of agricultural land and farms between family members (and related negotiations).

Key skills

  • Complex rural land transactions

  • Farm business tenancies and related work
  • Overage-related issues and the sale of land with overage agreements

Experience highlights

I qualified in 1982 and so can bring experience to bear in dealing with complex property issues and transactions.

As an example, I have dealt with various disposals of valuable development land to national house builders for substantial sums, involving deferment of payment of part of the purchase price and related arrangements.

Over my 35 years of practising in Gloucestershire, I have become a ‘trusted adviser’ to many of my clients, and as such am often invited to become their executor or trustee.
