Let our experienced attorneys guide you through issues related to agriculture law and the ownership of land in Texas. All of our attorneys were raised in families that own farms or ranches in Southeast Texas, so they appreciate the ties that most Texans have with their land. No matter if you’re facing a dispute with the local Central Appraisal District, you have a disagreement with your neighbor about a property boundary, or you and other family members are talking about partitioning family land, our attorneys can help you.
Some Common Issues in Agriculture Law and Landowner Representation
A common issue in agriculture law is the drafting of agricultural leases. Our attorneys can help you with grazing leases, hunting leases, livestock leases and other leases. It’s our experience that a clear and complete lease agreement keeps all parties happy and prevents misunderstandings.
There are an increasing number of pipelines being routed through our area of Texas. You may be contacted by a right of way agent regarding the purchase of an easement across your property. You may also be contacted for some other reason related to eminent domain — perhaps the expansion of a highway adjacent to your property. When you’re facing condemnation, you have rights as a landowner and you should talk with an experienced condemnation attorney to understand your rights. Attorney Philip Hundl has years of experience helping clients through the condemnation process in a variety of eminent domain cases. His Texas Condemnation Rights website provides more information to help you understand your rights as a landowner.
Good fences make good neighbors, but fences can also be a cause of disputes between neighbors. Our attorneys can help you settle disputes with your neighbors regarding the location of fences and the construction of new fences.
An important issue in agriculture law is minimizing landowner liability for the use of the landowner’s property. Do you lease your property for hunting or grazing? Do you offer horseback riding lessons? Do you allow friends to ride horses across your property? You may be liable for injuries or deaths that occur on your property if you don’t have agreements in place limiting your liability. Talk with one of our attorneys to ensure that you’re protected.
