Agricultural tenancies

We have a wealth of experience in advising farmers and landowners on all tenancy related matters, including tenancies created under the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 and Farm Business Tenancies.

A review of tenancy arrangements is a necessary part of succession planning, whether in terms of preparing Wills, addressing your taxation position or in considering and planning the future of your business.  We are well-placed to offer a comprehensive review of your position taking into account your day to day business, personal and family needs and also your hopes for the future.

We advocate that effective planning at the outset is vital to achieve a sustainable tenancy and a successful ongoing relationship between the parties.  Our team of expert advisors include members of specialist practice organisations such as the Country Land & Business Association (CLA) and Agricultural Law Association (ALA), ensuring the highest level of qualification and experience.

We have a real understanding of our clients’ needs and the marketplace and will provide you with the clear, concise and practical advice you need, whether landowner or tenant.
