With close links to the local farming community, our seasoned lawyers are able to guide you through the increasingly complex nature of Agricultural Law.
Our position in the heart of the farming and rural community has enabled us to develop considerable experience in Agricultural Law. The Agriculture Team at Sewell Mullings Logie understands the changing environment in which farmers and landowners operate so clients can be confident that we will work with them to achieve their business and personal objectives.
We advise on a complete range of legal issues including:
- Buying, selling and letting farms and agricultural land
- Farming partnerships
- Rights of way, boundaries and general property issues
- Farm Business Tenancies and licences
- Fishing and sporting rights
- Grazing agreements
- Planning issues
We advise on all commercial transactions, whether you are buying or selling assets or a company.
Example of our experience: Farmland Sale
We acted for trustees on the sale of farmland at auction. The title was unregistered and part of it was missing. The team advised that the title be registered at the Land Registry prior to the auction which involved preparing a statutory declaration in respect of the lost title deed. In addition the land had previously been let on a farm business tenancy and we therefore arranged for that tenancy to be surrendered prior to the auction so that the client could sell with vacant possession. The land was sold successfully at the auction.
