At Morton Fraser Lawyers we have highlighted clarity as our guiding principle.
This directs the way we communicate, the way we advise, the way we conduct relationships with our clients and the way we are totally transparent and upfront about our charges. This applies to all our services from the straightforward to the more complex.
Whether you are a grazing tenant of a few acres of land, a farmer wishing to review your inheritance tax (IHT) position or a Scottish estate owner who has a suite of let farms, we have the experience and the knowledge to assist you.
Clear advice on agricultural and rural tenancies
Your aim may be to secure IHT reliefs, or perhaps you simply wish to enjoy the convenience of having your land looked after by a contractor. We will ensure that your arrangements are fit for purpose and tailored to your specific needs. Our expert team covers both contentious and non-contentious matters, working with our clients to provide clear, concise advice.
Benefits we bring
Our working knowledge of both the 1991 Act tenancy regime and the post-2003 Act reforms ensures that we can provide comprehensive advice no matter what issues you may be facing. We also advise on other forms of agreement covering different types of occupation, such as rent-free licences and contracting agreements.
Our approach to fees
We don't want you to be surprised by the final bill we produce – that's why we will endeavour at the outset of every transaction to provide you with a fixed fee quote to give you clarity and certainty on costs. Where we can't do this, we will provide you with an estimated charge, which we will aim to convert to a fixed fee quote once the scope of the transaction becomes clearer.
