Rural

At Hay & Kilner, we have a team of expert solicitors who provide advice to our clients involved in agricultural land and farming or related rural activities. Whether you run a large or small family business, a large company or a landed estate we can give you the expert advice you need. We deliver a quality assured service, focusing on your specific requirements, and are committed to securing the best result for you.



We work closely with your other professional advisers, such as bankers, accountants and land agents, to ensure that you achieve the best solution in the most tax efficient manner. We have good relationships with many national and regional organisations and recommend that clients in the rural community need their trusted adviser “team” to all work together for the best results to be achieved.

We are members of the Country Landowners Association (CLA).
