A significant proportion of our clients at Onions & Davies, are farming clients and land owners.
We have considerable experience in advising these clients in all areas of law applicable to their personal circumstances.
There are various types of agricultural property, including farmhouses, cottages, farm buildings, commercial units, bare land, woodland, quarries, lakes and river banks with fishing or sporting rights.
Particular rules will apply to these types of property and transactions involving them require specialist advice to ensure that specific issues and potential pitfalls are effectively dealt with.
You may have issues to do with: rights of way, access over open land, boundaries, water supplies, land drainage, planning controls, mines and minerals, agricultural quotas & subsidies, tenancies, inheritance tax planning, common land, chancel repair liabilities, re-development opportunities and title problems and we can help resolve those issues.
Where particular issues are outside our experience or expertise, we will work in partnership with outside agencies to achieve the best solution for you.
