Machinery and equipment
With the introduction of the Personal Properties Securities Register the concept of ownership and other interests in farm machinery took on a whole new complexity. How farm machinery is acquired and financed and the various competing interests that are created at the time of that transaction can be a minefield. The best structuring arrangements to ensure protection of those personal property assets can take some careful thought and planning. Our rural law team can help steer you through the process of searching, registering or discharging PPSR interests and can offer training to enable clients to manage this if they handle a large fleet of vehicles or plant.
Our rural team litigators can provide legal advice and representation in respect of insurance disputes, contract breaches or other disagreements involving plant and machinery, where you haven’t got what you bargained for, and your farm business suffers consequential losses because your machines aren’t working.
