The EA are being a pain and stipulating we must currently meet the ag tie conditions and my wife has to be the main bread winner before even considering letting us view the property.

Will keep an eye out for Ag tie properties in case anything comes up again as now really want a place with some land and it's a possibly cheaper way to achieve that

Hi, was after some advice please. My father has been granted planning permission for an agricultural workers dwelling on the family farm. It will be for my parents to retire to, the farm house will become my brothers. In time the new dwelling would eventually become my home, well that's the plan. It's not clear if your brother works on the farm, but even if he doesn't, it's possible the local planning dept at the council has allowed a tied retirement property and a non-tied farmhouse to accommodate both generations.
My question is, if my father was to transfer 50% of the ownership of the field planning has been granted on (land is owned outright) would I then be 50% owner of the bungalow that is eventually built on it? That may be a stupid question but I'm not sure! It's not a stupid question. If you were to become a part-owner of a field, it would not automatically make you part-owner of any property built on it, though you would be a freeholder of the land the property occupied. Your share of any property built would be defined in its title document (deeds).Whether you could actually occupy the property would depend on the situation at the time you wanted to do this, and not now.
I have been asked to contribute to the cost of the building but want to ensure that I'm safeguarded should we all fall out (would hope not but you never know) To ensure you are safeguarded in this respect, you'd need to run the proposed title documents past a solicitor. However, if a legal expert is drawing these documents up for the family and you're a contributor, you'd expect all the different ways of doing this to be fully explained to you at the drafting stage.
If I was to become half owner of the field would this affect the planning permission granted, it has got an agricultural tie condition. I do work on the family farm It hasn't affected the planning permission because it's already been granted. You might become a part owner, but the right to occupy the property is a seperate matter, depending on your main work at the time.
Any advice greatly appreciated, or anything else I need to think about/consider
