Mills & Reeve has updated its Farm Tenancies book with a third edition to guide landowners and tenants through the maze of complex farm tenancy rules. It is the latest in a series of publications about agricultural law from the firm, which also features Divorce and the Farm and Farming Together for Profit.
The complexity of agricultural law, and particularly farm tenancies, has been increasing in recent years as a framework, which has its roots in 1948 legislation and ancient legal principle, struggles to adapt to the latest environmental or employment regulation and the ever-changing subsidiary regimes coming out of Brussels.
The exact status of a farm tenancy can affect issues as diverse as inheritance tax liability, the value of a divorce settlement or the ability to establish wind farms or other green energy systems.
Farm Tenancies has been updated to make all the changes in the law available to those requiring a clear understanding of these complex issues. The book covers all the difficult technical areas but is written in a clear and practical way, based on the firm’s depth of knowledge and experience.
