With our head office located in Macclesfield in the heart of the Peak District and offices across Cheshire and Derbyshire, we are surrounded by some of the finest agricultural and farmland in the UK. Our agricultural conveyancing team has extensive experience resolving a wide range of conveyancing matters.
The buying and selling of agricultural land and farmland can be complex. It is dealt with separately from other types of property because it has its own unique set of rules. Therefore, it is important to use a solicitor that specialises in agricultural conveyancing as they will be able to guide you through the complexities, provide you with in-depth legal advice and advise you on the relevant laws and regulations that apply to agricultural land and farmland. They will also be able to make sure that you have access to all the relevant legal documentation, which will allow you to complete your transaction smoothly.
Most specialist agricultural conveyancing solicitors can assist you with all aspects of agricultural property ownership and tenancies including the purchase and sale of agricultural land and farmland.
Agricultural property and farmland purchases generally involve complex considerations that are not present in non-agricultural property purchases. The majority of the time, the property is purchased and sold as a stand-alone asset; however, if the land is owned as part of a corporation, it may be more complex due to diligence and liability issues. As specialist agricultural solicitors, we can ensure that basic property issues like rights of access and the property’s planning history are taken into account, as well as ensuring that specialised agricultural difficulties are addressed so you know precisely what you’re getting.
Farmland can be purchased through a variety of techniques, including private treaties, auctions, and formal tenders. While auction used to be a common mode of purchase, the significant rise in the cost of farms and agricultural property has made it a riskier buying method. Therefore, if you choose to purchase farmland, you will need to contact our conveyancing team as soon as possible.
The selling of agricultural property, land and farms also tends to be a complex process. Our team of experienced agricultural solicitors can work closely with you to ensure that the transaction goes through as quickly and efficiently as possible.
If you are thinking about selling your land, farm, or estate, we recommend that you contact us as soon as possible so that we can work with you and your agent to gather important information about your ownership of the property and identify and prevent any hidden issues that could cause delays in the sale.
