Land, farms and estates
If legal advice on rural or farming matters is to make sense, ideally it should come from someone who understands life in the country.
That is why Moore Blatch have developed a team of leading legal experts who are country people themselves and who can truly empathise with you. We would rather get out and walk the land with you than talk over the telephone.
This approach has helped to develop excellent, trusted relationships with other rural professionals giving you a wider network of support you may require, including land agents and accountants. Many of the team are also members of the Agricultural Law Association and the Country Land and Business Association.
We can advise you with all legal aspects of owning land in the countryside. This includes an intimate understanding of farm and land sales and purchases, farm tenancies, licences and herbage agreements, agricultural residential tenancies, diversification, entitlements, renewable energy arrangements, mineral leases, manorial law, selling development land and option and promotion agreements.
As one of the leading specialist legal rural services teams in the south, we will deliver the quality of service and expertise you would expect from a top London practice but at the rate of a quality regional firm. Our lawyers are accessible and approachable explaining legal matters in plain, easy to understand language. We are happy to hold meetings at your home or place of business wherever you are located.
You will receive the benefit of our team having years of expertise and experience to deal with the most complex of situations and, in addition, we can draw on advice from our employment, wills and tax planning and real estate dispute teams to ensure that you receive full support in all aspects of the transaction.
We are able to provide you with straightforward advice and transparency of costs because we take time to get to know and understand your needs. You can be confident that our legal advice is well informed, practical and based on a deep knowledge and love of the countryside.
