Farming Inheritance Disputes

It is sadly becoming increasingly common for claims to be made on farmers’ estates. This is partly due to the increasing value of agricultural and farming land and assets and partly due to an ever more litigious society.

It is common for farms to be left specifically to a particular child or divided unequally between children. This can lead to consternation between siblings and claims on parent’s estates. We therefore advise all farming families to take specialist legal advice when making their Wills to ensure their wishes are carried out in the manner they choose.
