Farming Land & Rural Property

We have extensive experience of dealing with all aspects of agricultural property.

The ownership, occupation, use and management of agricultural land are regulated in many different ways. As one of the most established firms in the County Down region dealing with the farming community and rural businesses, we have developed an understanding of agriculture and rural affairs that we can use to assist you. Any transaction involving farm land will almost inevitably require specialist advice on issues as diverse as quotas and subsidies, agricultural tenancies/conacre lettings, occupation of dwellings and farm buildings, planning, rights of way, environmental issues and employment, to name but a few.

We can deal with every aspect of the law affecting rural property transactions.

Our services include sales and purchases of estates, farms, land and country houses; secured lending on agricultural property; agricultural tenancies and conacre lettings; residential tenancies for farm cottages; EU milk quotas, Single Farm Payment Scheme and other support payments, subsidies and quotas; farm business reorganisation and restructuring; rights of way and the granting of other easements; and partnerships, share farming and contracting arrangements.

In today’s rapidly changing market we appreciate that property transactions very often need to be completed quickly and advice is required within very tight timescales. With our extensive and highly specialised knowledge, we are well able to respond to this challenge, ensuring that we achieve the very best deal for our clients.
