Farms and Estates

A Conveyancing Handbook (Second Edition)

By Christopher Jessel, Simon Goulding

Farms and Estates: A Conveyancing Handbook is the only textbook dedicated to this subject. Written by one of the leading agricultural lawyers in the UK, it guides you through the complexities of advising on the sale and purchase of rural land-a process that frequently raises technical problems which differ greatly from standard conveyancing transactions, such as dealing with unregistered land, livestock quotas, tenancy problems, and the transfer of employees and contracts for plant and machinery. This new edition takes account of recent major UK legislative developments including the Common Agricultural Policy which came into effect in May 2005, the Land Registration Act 2002, and Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. This book provides a practical explanation of the subject, highlighting what the professional adviser must look for, and how a deal should be structured to avoid tax and other problems. It also includes 18 specialist precedents.
