Farmer clients are sometimes faced with losses associated with events caused by another party.
A common example is the construction of a pipeline through your property. This may cause for example a short term loss of grazing land, disruption of planned rotations, local flooding due to pipeline soil disrupting normal flows, loss of time due to extra time associated with reduced stock and machinery access while the pipeline is laid. When faced with a loss it is very important to keep a well documented diary of events and document all expenses. A library of photos of damage is also very useful.
It is best if you contact Alan Blackburn and Associates Consulting early in a situation such as this as we will advise you re the records you need to keep in order for us to assess and verify your loss.
