Land matters: collaborative working for rural land and business

Land matters: collaborative working for rural land and business

Our Rural Land and Business team here at Hunters get to see a very wide variety of client issues. There are the regular sorts of matters: sales, purchases, leases, re-structuring, re-financing and developments. And with much rural property owned by trustees, there is regular work relating to trust and tax planning, succession, heritage law, Wills and probate. 

However, the land is not always peaceful. We are ready to advise on boundaries, neighbourly matters, landlord and tenant claims, adverse possession, trespass, and restrictive covenants. And we even still see a need to attend to the first registration of title.

Our expertise has been in demand for centuries and it’s therefore pleasing to be recognised again by the Spear’s Landed Estates Index for HNW 2024: Hunters’ Partners featured in the Spear’s index of landed estate lawyers for HNW 2024

David Draisey (Hunters’ Head of Litigation) and James Vernor-Miles (Head of Residential Property) often work closely together to ensure our rural land and business clients can run their estates effectively.

We work with HNW clients throughout the UK and abroad, many of whom have been with us for several generations. We nurture our relationships, offering families the continuity, consistency and confidence they need to manage their long-term interests; even and especially when the unforeseen might arise.

Running a modern estate is not without its challenges and we’re proud that we are still supporting clients in navigating their legal challenges, whether that be around sustainability and climate change, selling land and property or maximising their estates’ business interests.
