How we can help you
Your aim may be to secure IHT reliefs, perhaps you simply wish to enjoy the convenience of having your land looked after by a contractor, or you wish to ensure that there is a valid bequest of your tenancy to the next generation. 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.
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, our team has the experience and the knowledge to assist you.
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 who you are or 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.
Supporting Tenant Farmers
We can provide practical advice on all aspects of agricultural leasing, whether it be in relation to tenant's improvements, waygoing claims, right to buy or assignation and succession issues our team is experienced and able to assist.
Expert Guidance to Landlords
Oftentimes the ownership of a landlord's interest in an agricultural holding is considered a long term investment. We act collaboratively with our tax and succession teams within Morton Fraser as well as with your accountant and other advisers to ensure your position is maximised and protected.
