Penningtons Manches

Farmers and landowners, together with the food industry, face many and varied challenges in today's world. Penningtons Manches provides effective legal advice tailored to meet the needs of all those whose livelihoods are based in the countryside or are concerned with food production.

We act on the acquisition and disposal of agricultural property and country houses, as well as tenancy agreements, taking into account relevant planning matters, payment entitlements and quotas.

Agricultural land is often affected by infrastructural projects and we have experience of compulsory purchase, highways, telecommunications and energy projects including wind farms and pipelines or pylons. We can deal with agreements associated with mining and landfill together with environmental considerations.

Of particular concern to farmers and landowners are tax efficient ways of passing on property to the next generation. Penningtons Manches has highly regarded private client advisers who can put in place the necessary wills and trusts to deal with inheritance and capital gains tax issues. We can advise on structures appropriate to individual businesses, whether partnerships or companies.

Rural areas suffer from a variety of disputes, some of which are unique to the countryside. Our solicitors can act on adverse possession, boundary, right of way, grazing, environmental and other disputes.

Providing legal advice to agricultural clients requires the integration of specialist real estate, business and private individual expertise with practical experience of the rural sector. Penningtons Manches is uniquely placed to offer such services.
