A massive Tractor in a field; our Conveyancing Solicitors can assist with purchasing agricultural land.
When buying agricultural land in England, several legal and regulatory frameworks come into play. Conveyancing Solicitors are instrumental in guiding clients through these complex landscapes to ensure a smooth, and more importantly, lawful transaction. Here is a list of some of the English laws and regulations along with the legal considerations that conveyancing solicitors may advise clients on when buying agricultural land: 

Proof of Ownership 

- Investigation of title to confirm the ownership of the land. 
- Ensuring registration of the land with the Land Registry if not already registered. 

Searches and Due Diligence 

Conducting searches to determine rights of way, planning notices and permissions, Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), listed buildings, conservation areas, historic monuments, chancel repair liabilities, mineral rights, and environmental issues such as drainage and pollution risks. 

Agriculture Act 2020 

Understanding the transition framework from the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) to the new policy in England as outlined in the Agriculture Act 2020

Planning and Infrastructure 

Advising on the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, and other planning and development orders to ensure compliance with planning regulations. 

Land Law Legislations 

Law of Property Act 1925, Settled Land Act 1925, Land Charges Act 1972, Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996, and Land Registration Act 2002. These legislations provide the legal framework for the acquisition, content, and priority of rights and obligations among individuals with interests in land. 

Contract of Sale 

Guiding through the contract of sale and ensuring formal registration of interest with HM Land Registry to complete the purchase. 

Environmental Regulations 

Ensuring compliance with environmental regulations, particularly if the land has been used for agricultural purposes. 

Local Zoning Laws 

Understanding and complying with local zoning laws which dictate the permissible uses of the land.
