Rural and Professional Services

Traditional land and property services and a determination to maximise asset value are at the heart of our business, underpinning all of our work.

We strive to understand the bigger picture so that we can tailor our approach to help you achieve your objectives – your success is our success.

 

Land & Property Sales and Letting

We are experienced in advising on the sale, acquisition and letting of rural properties and land, and have a sound knowledge of the market throughout North Wales, the North West of England and the West Midlands.

For commercial properties we are able to provide disposal and acquisition support services and have acted for a number of clients nationwide.

Tenancy Advice

Whether you require advice on an existing agreement, or are considering how best to structure any new arrangements, we are on hand to help. Our practical experience of agricultural, commercial and residential tenancy legislation is comprehensive and we are able to advise on a wide range of situations.

When entering into a new relationship, it is not only important to consider the practical implications, such as who does what, but also to look at any financial and taxation implications that may arise.

We can help with:

  • Agricultural Holdings/Tenancies Act Agreements
  • Protected, Secure and Assured Residential Tenants
  • Grazing Licenses or other informal situations
  • Landlord and Tenant Act Commercial Agreements
  • Share and Contract Farming Agreements

Succession Planning

Making sure property and business assets are passed on to beneficiaries in a timely and commercially efficient manner is an important part of planning for retirement.
We look at the bigger picture to understand what is important to everyone involved and ensure that solutions are tailored to suit. Where incorrect assumptions are made about the intentions of younger generations poor structures can be extremely costly to undo.

Farm Business Management

As the commercial development of farming continues there are an increasing number of specialist roles where we can provide support. From Basic Payment Scheme, Environmental Stewardship and general funding grant applications to Budgets, record keeping and stocktaking valuations we can support the core business as much or as little as required.

Valuations

As members of the RICS valuation panel we are able to provide a range of property valuation services for taxation and succession planning, probate, business restructuring or sales/acquisition purposes.

Compulsory Purchase, Compensation Claims, Wayleaves and Easements

Should a third party in any way affect your land we are able to ensure that you do not suffer any commercial disadvantage as a result.

Our experience covers the usual water, gas, and electricity utilities as well as the infrastructure and telecommunications sectors, but we are seeing an increase in the number of private negotiations for rights to install services.

Specialist Land negotiations

On top of the smaller, everyday transactions there can be more specialist and infrequent strategic arrangements that don’t have an ‘off the shelf’ solution. We have experience in a wide range of situations and can help with Option and Promotion agreements, Joint Venture’s and other land related corporate structuring.

We can also provide advice on legal title issues to property, boundary disputes and on the removal or enforceability of restrictive covenants.
