- Acted on the sale of a c.2,000 acre mixed estate, which included a well-established in-hand farming operation; a shoot; a significant residential property portfolio; and development land. The sale had very tight deadlines which, despite the size of the estate and breadth of information required, we met leading to a very successful outcome for our client
- Executed a large-scale re-arrangement of existing Agricultural Holdings Act tenancies across an estate as part of a long-term planning strategy. This required careful consideration, due to the number of hidden pitfalls potentially encountered in work of this kind, to meet the client’s aims
- Assisted in large development project to obtain vacant possession of the land from the existing Agricultural Holdings Act tenant to enable the deal to go through. This required a mix of both following the statutory procedure and adopting a more pragmatic approach to realise the client’s goals
