Landowners & land agents

Lodders has a long heritage in advising landowners and strong ties to the agricultural community. This ensures we understand the very personal nature and importance of land development. Land may often be a family’s principal asset and have provided a livelihood for several generations. Our approach is personal, sensitive, and supportive so that our landowner clients feel comfortable with and understand the transaction, remaining fully informed as the deal progresses.

We always work closely with a landowner’s land agent and accountants from an early stage to ensure that each transaction is structured fairly for the landowner and in a tax-efficient manner.

Further information on how we help landowners and land agents

We have a wealth of experience in dealing with developments involving multiple landowners and land assembly issues as well as restructuring existing incompatible overage and clawback arrangements. Such transactions can provide complex challenges in sharing costs and values and managing tax implications. Where land is being retained, we structure any sale to ensure that the landowner retains all the necessary rights to continue to occupy their retained land. Equally, our in-depth expertise in overage and clawback arrangements enables us to secure the landowner’s ongoing interest in any land sold.
