Agricultural Law

We have a long tradition of acting for local farmers and landowners in both Devon and further afield.

Whether buying or selling a farm or farmland, dealing with farming assets, or letting your property, it is important that you are given the correct legal advice. Through our experience in agricultural matters we understand the pressures on the rural community and are well placed to give practical and realistic advice.

Many farmers and landowners wish to consider diversifying their business so as to maximise the potential of their land.  It is important that proper advice is taken on all the factors that need to be considered such as tax consequences, planning requirements, National Park consent and legal consents.

As a result of ever changing agricultural policy, farmers are experiencing many rapid developments. They must keep pace with a wide range of changes such as reforms in CAP, the impact of planning and environmental policy and reforms to the law of agricultural holdings. There is also the ever present need to arrange their affairs in a tax efficient manner.
