Our Commercial Property team are also able to advise you on legal aspects surrounding land development. They can assist you in obtaining further information on the types of land you may be considering.
Greenfield land is undeveloped land such as parks or forests. This is the most popular type of land to build on. However, this type of land can be difficult to obtain planning permissions. We would advise that you check with the local authorities before considering your purchase.
Brownfield land is land which had once been occupied by another building. This is usually a safer development options as you know that planning must have already been permitted. We can advise you on how to obtain the planning status of the development sites you wish to purchase.

Agriculture and Farming
There is usually much more to buying or selling farms than just the land aspect of the transaction. It usually includes a family business which is run through a limited company or partnership.
The land is often held separately from the business and licensed or leased to the company or partnership. This means that a buyer would have to purchase the land separately from the company.
As well as the overall purchase, there is also the assets of the business to consider. Machinery such as tractors and combine harvesters are large and expensive assets. Livestock may also be included in the sale of the land and company.
Subsidy payments may be passed with the farm as well as chattels such as poultry units and timber buildings which may not be fixed to the land. There may be other compliance requirements and agreements which are conditions of the sale or purchase. This can include things such as:
- Water abstraction licences.
- Woodland grant agreements.
- Agrienvironment agreements
- Holdover rights for growing crops.
Farmland has its own lease/tenancy system and may require additional licenses to enable occupation.
Our experienced team understand farmers needs. They are experts in the complexities of agricultural conveyancing. They will ensure that as a seller, you receive the best price for your farm. If you are purchasing farmland, our team will ensure that you receive everything that you have negotiated.
