LEAP are pleased to announce that with help from our clients, a new matter category has been created entitled Rural Law / Agribusiness.
Under Rural Law/ Agribusiness we have created two new matter types:
- Purchase of Rural Property; and
- Sale of Rural Property.
These matter types can be found under ‘Other Areas of Law > Rural Law / Agribusiness’.
These 2 new matter types have been based on the Sale/Purchase of Business, with a few tweaks. We have also added a new layout entitled ‘Assets/Property’. This layout is to capture the different aspects of property that can be sold/purchased with rural property and includes options such as:
- Tools of trade;
- Plant & Equipment;
- Fixtures & Fittings;
- Leasehold & Licences;
- Brands / Ear tags;
- Permit to occupy
A total for the amounts entered will appear on the Summary page of this layout and will also display on the matter when the layout is closed.
We have kept the Calendar & Tasks dates the same as the Sale and Purchase of Business however a couple of extras have been included as a result of client feedback which are:
- Ministerial Consent Date
- Muster Date
- PPSR Registration Date
All of which have confirmation tickboxes.
This new area of law is very exciting and has now been expanded to include South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
For our Tasmanian, South Australian, Northern Territory and Western Australian clients if you have any feedback that you would like to make regarding either of these new matter types, or some further matter types for Rural Law, the Content team would be interested to hear from you. We would also like your feedback as to any forms that you require us to create and code for use with these matters. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall be in touch shortly.
