Acquisitions of agricultural property and land

We assist with the sale and purchase of all types of agricultural property, whether you are purchasing a farm, smallholding, a parcel/acreage of land, woodland, or anything else. We can advise you on matters that are particularly relevant to that land including access to it, covenants the land might be bound by and other environmental considerations such as whether the land might be able to benefit from the Basic Payment Scheme or be subject to a Stewardship Agreement.

Auction Packs

If acting for a seller we can prepare an Auction Pack for an agent Auction. If acting for a buyer we can advise on an Auction Pack and deal with the post-auction completion and registration formalities.


We can assist in formally documenting an easement, such as a right of way or right to use service media and deal with the registration of the easement at the Land Registry.

First Registrations

We advise upon and deal with both registered and unregistered land. For unregistered land, we identify the root of title document and prepare an application for first registration.


We act for both mortgagees and mortgagors. We can advise you on your obligations under a Legal Charge and if acting for a Bank we can carry out the required due diligence in order to protect the Bank. We can also prepare Loan Agreements.

Options and Conditional Contracts

We deal with the drafting and negotiation of Option Agreements and Conditional Contracts relating to land to ensure that the agreements are watertight, ready for them to be exercised in the future.


We prepare Overage Agreements on land and advise on what this means for you. Overage is a legally complex area that we have expertise in and can advise you on its implications.


Drafting and preparing Transfer deeds, whether for part or whole, is a particular specialism that we deal with. We can also add value by liaising with our Private Client team who can advise you in respect of gifting, succession and lifetime planning.
