There are rules around water use that you will need to be aware of if your business is buying or leasing rural land. Stacks can provide advice about water use and any licenses that may be required.
Water rights law relates to the licensing of rights to be able to draw water from natural water bodies such as dams and lakes.
Water licences can be transferred but it is important to understand the value of the licences as well as the procedure involved in the transfer of the licences.
Our team of water rights specialists can assist with the registration or transfer of licences, or the creation of new licences for the use of water.
Stacks Law Firm can provide advice about whether a licence is necessary, and ensure that the transfer of any licence is part and parcel of any transfer of ownership of rural land.
