Whether you are a sole owner/farmer, farming partnership or operational agricultural business, looking to buy or sell assets, let or take on leases of farming property, or otherwise deal with agricultural husbandry (such as grazing, growing, mowing, planting and harvesting), Franklin & Co. is proud to represent all clients in every requirement, and proves to be successful in delivering results.

The field of agricultural property cannot be defined by reference to an exhaustive list; there are so many varied transactional requirements. But irrespective of your agricultural business goals, objectives, operation, size and turnover, you will likely require some sort of commercial legal advice during the lifecycle of your business. When you choose Franklin & Co. you can trust our Commercial Property team to clearly identify your needs and provide a reliable and valuable service for both long-standing, well established ventures, as well as those who are just starting out.

Franklin & Co. offers an extensive range of legal advice relating to commercial property transactions, all of which is available to our clients within an agricultural context (and there are often many crossovers between the fields of agricultural and commercial property legal services). Some of the services we can offer are:

  • Agricultural conveyancing
  • Agricultural leases and tenancy agreements
  • Agricultural partnerships and joint ventures
  • Adverse possession and boundary adjustment
  • Assignments and subletting of existing leases
  • Authorised guarantee agreements
  • Business start-up advice
  • Buying and selling of agricultural property
  • Buying and selling of business assets
  • Buying and selling of commercial property
  • Commercial and residential property development
  • Conditional contracts
  • Deeds of variation of contracts
  • Leasing commercial property – acting for either landlord or tenant
  • Mortgages and secured lending
  • Option agreements
  • Overage clawback agreements
  • Review and preparation of standard terms and conditions
  • Variations and amendments to existing lease

We will always try to carry out our work under a fixed fee arrangement, as we acknowledge the importance to our clients of price certainty. Where appropriate, we may also offer fee choices to our clients, to allow a client-led selection of the most appropriate fee structure in the circumstances. We will therefore fully discuss with you our proposed professional fee (and provide an estimate of third-party costs) before you are financially committed. We aspire to transparency in all our fee quotes offered and the services we deliver.

At Franklin & Co. we recognise the need to efficiently progress transactional matters, while at the same time ensuring our clients are best-represented and protected by the terms and conditions of the matter at hand; as such, all commercial property matters are supervised by our experienced Head of Commercial Property to ensure this balance is achieved diligently.
