Leasing - Agricultural Leases

Agricultural leases are by their nature rather different to other lease types. With most other types of leases  the tenant is not permitted to significantly alter the premises without specific consent from the landlord.

However with agricultural leases, the tenant's use of the property is  theoretically able to improve the property or cause detriment to the property depending upon the husbandry methods that the tenant employs.

Accordingly it is essential that an Agricultural lease is properly drafted to recognise the  competing needs of the tenant and the landlord. In addition the  Agricultural Tenancies Act 1990 and its compensation regime need to be taken into account.
