Buying & Selling Land
Whether you are selling or buying one acre or five hundred acres, Pardoes' Agricultural and Rural Business team can help. Our Agricultural Law solicitors have extensive knowledge of selling and buying every type of rural property including farms, land, woodland and country houses being sold by auction or private treaty.
The team are used to working to tight timescales and will do everything they can to progress your transaction and ensure that your sale and purchase completes quickly and smoothly. Should problems arise our agricultural lawyers will deal with these quickly and effectively and can advise on your options to move things forward, including arranging title insurance where a specific title defect has been identified.
The team are experienced in dealing with Single Farm Payments, Environmental Stewardship and other environmental and woodland grant schemes. These schemes are increasingly complex and special attention needs to be given when transferring land in order to ensure that entitlements pass with the land or are retained. We make sure that appropriate provisions are included within the Contract to reflect your requirements.
We can offer advice in relation to secured lending and regularly deal with mortgages and remortgages of agricultural property. We have good relationships with the local representatives of most agricultural lending institutions and are pro-active in progressing transactions as quickly as possible so that once an offer of secured lending has been made by a lender, you have access to the finance you need.
When advising in relation to your sale or purchase, we look at the transaction as a whole and have experts in related areas who will help. For example, we understand that there are sometimes complex legal issues arising from occupation of land and advise landlords and tenants in relation to the various arrangements which may exist, and how these may affect your sale or purchase.
We are also happy to look at the transaction in the context your business and family as a whole and if required may provide advice in relation to estate planning to ensure that you fully understand the consequences of your sale or purchase in relation to your business or assets as a whole.
