Cases involving farms and country estates present a range of issues for the court not encountered in more conventional cases. The court will often be trying to balance the desire and sense of obligation one party has to keep the farm or estate in the family and the fact that property is inherited with the need to release capital and income for the other.
Members of the Harcourt Finance Group are experienced in tackling these problems. Many members have experience in dealing with cases where there is inherited wealth or where there are businesses being run on land, tenanted land and sporting rights.
Our members are adept at identifying the need for suitably specialised experts to deal with valuation, liquidity and planning issues.
