As a diverse way of life, and involving the interrelationship of people with often conflicting interests, farming disputes almost inevitably arise in one form or another. This can particularly be the case where there is a landlord – tenant relationship.

Where a dispute arises, the key to successful resolution is to recognise that, although the necessary procedures are not hostile, they still have to be acted upon. By facing up to the issue head on, a resolution to the satisfaction of all parties can often be achieved amicably and efficiently. Through the litigation department, the firm has considerable experience handling agricultural disputes, including:

  • Boundaries
  • Water supplies and drainage
  • Compliance with statutory provisions for both landlords and tenants
  • Matters arising on the creation, dissolution or general practice of a farming partnership
  • Matters that require arbitration
