As an agricultural property solicitor, I am privileged to live and work in a beautiful part of Dorset. One of the many benefits of my work is the opportunity to visit some lovely parts of the English countryside acting on sales and purchases and other land related matters. Recently, I visited a local dairy farm
At Farnfields, we regularly act for landowners and tenants on a variety of matters relating to agricultural tenancies. Such tenancies could be Farm Business Tenancies or older Agricultural Holdings Act tenancies.
We are regularly involved in the preparation and negotiation of new Farm Business Tenancies. We also offer advice on existing arrangements which may need renewing, updating or terminating. Most tenancies are either annual or for a fixed term. Often grazing licences can be more suitable than tenancies.
Agricultural tenancies require a practical approach and in depth knowledge of the law. We offer advice on many straight-forward and complex matters including:
- Grazing licences
- Rent reviews
- Ending tenancies and recovering possession
- Serving notices
- Fixtures and fittings
- Agricultural entitlements and schemes
- Boundaries and plans
- Whether or not the land is registered or unregistered land
We work regularly with agents, accountants, tax advisors and other professionals to ensure any tenancy is structured according to your needs. We also have external professional connections and other experts within Farnfields who can help you on a variety of associated matters (such as inheritance tax, family succession planning and disputes) which may relate to such agricultural tenancies from time to time.
