    Land, Estates & Rural Business

    We Make it Possible for your business to grow and diversify

    At Harrison Drury, our specialist rural law strength lies in the depth of expertise and range of legal services we are able to offer to our agricultural and rural business clients, serving both their commercial and personal requirements.

    We are proud to act for a wide range of rural clients, including farming businesses and partnerships, rural family estates and food production companies serving both their commercial, family and personal matters.

    We appreciate and understand the importance of keeping up-to-date with the rapidly changing agricultural law and the regulations which affect rural businesses. The comprehensive range of specialist legal services we offer to clients in the rural and agricultural sector is therefore essential to guide our clients through all aspects of their business and personal lives.

    As EC developments affect farming and rural businesses more and more, so access to clear and concise advice, with an understanding of the practical implications of such advice, becomes increasingly important. We offer a one-stop high-quality agribusiness law service.

    We advise on all aspects of farming law and estate management including:

    • Sale and purchase of farms and estates
    • Farm business restructuring including limited companies, partnerships, joint ventures, share farming and contracting arrangements
    • Wayleaves and Telecommunications
    • Covenants and easements affecting land
    • Agricultural estates – planning and development
    • Renewable energy projects, including wind farms, photovoltaic solar panels and anaerobic digesters
    • Tax planning
    • Wills, trusts and administration of estates
    • Lasting Powers of Attorney, Inheritance tax advice and succession planning

    We also offer a full range of agricultural legal services and advice tailored to rural businesses and enterprises, including:

    • Sales and purchase of rural businesses
    • Secured lending on business property
    • Business tenancies for office and commercial property lettings
    • Commercial contracts
