The Government has now started its consultation on the retirement scheme and the de-linking scheme for farmers, both owner occupiers and tenants, announced in the Agriculture Act 2020. The Tenant Farmers Association reported from their survey earlier in the spring that three quarters of tenant farmers will consider retiring. Whatever scheme rules put in place for retirement, it is unlikely that the payments will be life changing however the scheme will be a great help to the industry as it will provide families with an excuse to openly discuss the issue of retirement.
For landowners, surplus buildings often result from retirement and there are now great options available for converting farm buildings including for some housing. A JHWalter farm appraisal will help you to better understand your assets and discover some unexpected options.
With the beauty of spring arriving across the East Midlands, farmers are being invited to help shape the future of England’s rural landscape by taking part in DEFRA’s Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot scheme. Why not carve out your own rural idyll with one of our rural property offerings.
