Opportunities to receive additional income from diversifying the use of your land may arise from time to time. Burley Geach is here to assist you realise those opportunities.

Increasingly we are working with landowners who are seeking our advice on various options for diversification, each of which requires a solid knowledge of the relevant specific legal implications:

Commercial lets

Prior to letting any premises for commercial purposes it is important to ensure that each party’s position and liabilities are clearly set out and recorded in a formal lease. From a landlord’s point of view it is important to ensure that you protect your capital asset and we can advise on the impact of the security of tenure provisions of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.

Telecommunications sites

Any landowner considering allowing a telecommunications company on site should first appreciate the implications of the Telecommunications Code, upon which our specialists can advise.

Solar farms

Leases of land for solar farms usually include specific arrangements and you should ensure that you first receive the requisite advice from both an agent with experience of such leases and a knowledgeable commercial property lawyer.

From time to time, other opportunities may arise to enable you to obtain additional income from either your own non-farming activities or allowing a third party temporary use of your land. We are always happy to discuss how we can assist you in protecting your interests so please contact us at our Petersfield office.
