Our specialist Agricultural and Rural Property team advise farmers and other rural landowners in all aspects of the sale and purchase of rural land. 

Working with our highly respected town planning department and other professionals we are also able to advise on farm and land diversification and rural development issues.

Our experienced team have many years of experience in advising in relation to agricultural leases, licences and tenancies which is a particularly complex area in which detailed specialist knowledge is required.

Recent projects have included grants of leases for a substantial solar farm, the sale of a stud farm as well as the sale and purchase of other rural landholdings with or without entitlements.

  • “Changing solicitors is not to be undertaken lightly. However really impressed with the way that John Munro and his associates have dealt with us over the last couple of years in a variety of complex property related transactions and on the commercial and personal front as well. We look forward to working with them going forward.”

    Stuart Cockram - Frost and Co

John joined Laceys in 2001 and is now the Head of the Commercial and Residential Property Departments. He is also the firm’s Senior Responsible Officer under the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) with overall responsibility for the management of the property team and their delivery of the excellent service that our clients have come to expect.

John acts in his own capacity for a number of commercial property owners, developers and investors, but also allocates time to ensure his team are up to speed with changing law and professional regulations and clients are provided with members of the team who possess the right skills to deal with their individual requirements, delivering projects in the most time and cost-efficient manner.

Outside of work John seems to spend a great deal of time ferrying his children around but occasionally gets to put his feet up and listen to his eclectic collection of vinyl. He is also not averse to a good cheeseboard and a glass of IPA.
