    Is there any advantage in having that auctioneer collecting the money every year, do they guarantee that you'll get paid.
    I used an auctioneer here to do the deal only, he charged 1% of the value of the ten year lease,

    Why bother with an auctioneer?
    What added security is an auctioneer if you have an interested party? As far as I can see two solicitors one for each party and draw up an acceptable agreement to both parties.

    What would be the average price to pay your solicitor for looking after the leasing in of approx. 25 acres land bearing in mind the Landlords solicitors has done all the paperwork drawing up the lease etc. ?

    You're leasing in land, and you are getting your solicitor involved is it?

    Not sure its necessary? We have land let, to a few different people over the years, and there never solicitors involved...
    We did the land lease through an auctioneer - the guy leasing just went in and signed it, and that was that...

    I think there are a few lease agreements made that are neutral, I think Teagasc and IFA have templates

    That's what I'm wondering do I actually need a solicitor at all but know I won't get a straight answer from a solicitor :(
    This lease will involve getting the land stamped officially by revenue if that makes a difference to me needing a solicitor

    No you can send it directly to revenue your self with the stamp payment. Teagasc, IFA or an auctioneer will advise

    So I rang the landlords solicitor to see if I could go in to sign the lease and they are insisting that I need my own solicitor to witness it.
    I asked is that a legal requirement and she said (secretary) she thinks it's in some document alright.

    I think the IFA (or other similar organisation) have a standard land lease agreement that anyone can download.
