Rural property and specialist property issues

Land Rights Law

JWK’s agricultural and rural lawyers have excellent knowledge of land law as well as first-hand experience of the practical aspects of ownership and occupation of rural property. We are experienced in the complex issues that often arise in buying and selling land, that are sometimes overlooked by those dealing in residential conveyancing. Complications can arise from unregistered public and private rights of way, boundary issues, private water supplies and drainage, preservations of aspect and views and neighbouring agricultural land and farming operations.

Our specialist Agricultural and Rural Law Team regularly deal with:

  • Sales and Purchase of Rural Property
  • First Registration of Land, Rights and Restrictions
  • Restrictive Covenant Issues
  • Easements and Boundaries
  • Adverse Possession
  • Trespass
  • Planning/Tied Cottages
