Agricultural occupancy conditions

Don’t plough a lonely furrow. We’re experts in the field.

Agricultural occupancy conditions can be very limiting, which is why owners often want to get them removed from their properties.

If your property has this type of condition, you can only sell or rent it to agriculture or forestry workers, which significantly reduces its value.

Alternatively, if you’re living in the property yourself, you may want to remove the condition so you’re not in breach of planning control.

However, getting rid of these conditions isn’t always straightforward. You should think carefully before you apply to the Local Planning Authority (LPA). In some cases, it may be better to seek a Certificate of Lawfulness.

We have extensive experience of removing agricultural occupancy conditions, and can advise on the best strategy for you.
