Acquiring an estate to shoot

The purchase of an estate to shoot game presents a number of (often complex) legal issues.

There are a number of restrictions on the exercise of sporting rights which it is important for any purchaser to be aware of. In addition, the purchase of an estate often includes land let under agricultural tenancies which present a number of issues for a purchaser (most particularly in respect of security of tenure for tenants and the reservation of sporting rights).

Please download our full briefing on this subject below. The note seeks to provide a high level overview of some of the key issues which should be considered in the context of purchasing estates for sporting purposes.
