I advise landowners, farmers, landed estates, individuals, companies, trusts and farm businesses in relation to non-contentious agricultural and rural land and property matters.
I have considerable experience advising on a broad spectrum of transactional and management work, covering the sale and purchase of land, farms and estates and country houses; agricultural occupancies; first registrations; auction sale and purchases; transfers of ownership and/or equity; residential and commercial sale, purchase and tenancies; documenting rights over land and property and dealing with both registered and unregistered land. My work also involves advising on complex rights in relation to water, drainage and access.
- Acting on the purchase of a country house with land including multiple cottages (some of which were listed) and equestrian facilities worth over £5m which were subject to occupancy restrictions.
- Dealing with the sale of part of a large landed estate for approximately £20m where the land was subject to various agricultural, commercial and residential tenancies and comprised multiple title numbers.
- Dealing with the disposal of land in numerous parcels to different purchasers by way of lot sales, which involved the surrender of part of an agricultural tenancy and the consideration of other undocumented occupation arrangements.
