We provide the same high-quality consulting service for people who own, or plan to own, agricultural property. It is worth noting that, like commercial property, agricultural property is a very wide term that includes, for example, agriculture woods, wetlands and gardens. Likewise, commercial property may include land used for mixed purposes.

At Redkite Solicitors, we can guide you through, among other things, the often complicated laws that influence how this property can be used, acquired and developed. We are the complete legal firm to efficiently manage all the relevant specifications for commercial and agricultural land.

What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.

How can our commercial property solicitors help you?

Our dedicated team of commercial property specialists will guide you on the following services:

  • Leases: negotiating and drafting
  • Developments
  • Planning
  • Agricultural land

Leases

Our experts can be trusted to deliver in a number of areas, such as challenging contract negotiations, lease drafting, lease assignments, lease surrenders and lease disputes. We pay attention to detail to ensure that you have a detailed understanding of the risks and possible liability that might be involved. A specifically drafted contract means a good working partnership between the landlord and the tenant.

Attention to Detail

Attention to detail is essential, as is the need to ensure that you have a clear view of the threats and potential risks involved. A carefully written contract will enable both the landlord and the tenant to build a good professional relationship and to achieve this goal at the outset.

Our lease services include:

  • Complex lease negotiations
  • Lease drafting
  • Lease assignments
  • Lease surrenders
  • Disputes over leases

Developments

Our clients benefit from a property team that provides advice on a variety of issues, from existing property developers and landowners to major landowners and public bodies.

With a comprehensive understanding of the commercial environment that affects land purchases, we frequently assist developers in making rational and strategic decisions aimed at improving productivity and returns for investors.

Our development advice covers every aspect of this area of law:

  • Purchase, acquisition and disposal of land for commercial use
  • Sale and lease of commercial property developments
  • Investment advice and property finance
  • Planning permission
  • Portfolio management
  • Licensing

Planning

There are few law firms with the level of understanding, successful track record and capacity to deal with all the problems of urban planning. Redkite solicitors do.

If you are unsure whether the local planning authority requires permission for the plans or requires disciplinary action, we can support you. We’ve developed high-level experience in town and country planning that’s unmatched in Wales.

Challenging Planning Authority Decisions

We can help you contest local planning authority decisions by working closely alongside local planning specialists (and professional planning counsellors if necessary).

If you are a developer you are also required to negotiate a planning arrangement with the local planning authority (often known as an agreement under section 106).  Our guidance will be needed to ensure that you are informed about the provisions of these agreements.

We can help you with every facet of planning including:

  • Planning Authority negotiations
  • Agreement and project negotiations, e.g. highways agreements and energy projects
  • Compulsory purchase acquisitions
  • Judicial Review Proceedings
  • Advice on listed buildings
  • Enforcement action advice

Agricultural Land

The agricultural sector is presently in a very regulated environment. For this reason, anyone who runs an agricultural business will profit from our professional knowledge and experience, bringing them through a legal maze which can be nothing short of the nightmare to an inexperienced person.

Don’t Commit Before Taking Specialist Advice

If you are a landlord or an investor the law is complicated and technical, it includes new tenancies for farm businesses.  Don’t commit yourself to anything until you receive specialist advice from our knowledgeable team.

Our business awareness means that we can assist you with the purchase or sale of land.  We understand the challenges that you can experience when coping with a wide variety of related issues.

Our expertise in the agricultural industry covers:

  • Agricultural Holdings Tenancies
  • Farm Business Tenancies

  • Equine law
  • Single Payment Scheme
  • Milk Quota
  • Environmental law

Commercial & Agricultural FAQs

Who is responsible for repairing and maintaining commercial property?

A

There will be certain obligations for both the landlord and the tenant who lease commercial property. For instance, routine health and safety inspections, i.e. gas and electrical equipment are necessary to ensure that the facilities are protected by the owner of the business. Many commercial landlords would delegate responsibility to their tenants to keep the property preserved to a reasonable standard in terms of maintenance and repair, thereby promising to handle the structural changes needed. Though, this will not necessarily be the case, and the actual commercial lease terms will dictate who is responsible for maintaining and restoring a property.

Can I appeal against decisions on planning permission?

A

If your planning application is rejected you have the right to challenge the ruling. Nonetheless, before lodging an appeal, it is a good idea to contact the local planning authority to find out which part of your proposal prompted the denial and whether or not those aspects could be changed in order to gain planning permission. We further suggest that you seek professional legal advice from a member of our staff to assist you in the appeal of the ruling, we will be able to assess the situation and help you in drafting the letter.
