Since 1995 all new agricultural tenancies are called ‘Farm Business Tenancies’. We can provide expert advice for landlords and commercial businesses in relation to a wide range of legal issues.

  • Negotiating terms
  • Drafting new agreements
  • Basic Payment Scheme considerations
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax considerations
  • Alternatives to farm business tenancies, such as grazing licences or commercial leases
  • We advise on agricultural tenancies under the old system, governed by the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 (AHA), particularly in relation to succession issues and new agreements which are still intended to be governed under the AHA.

We also advise on commercial tenancies which are not primarily of an agricultural nature, notably:

  • Equine
  • Shooting
  • Woodland
  • Fishing
  • Recreational
  • Holiday cottages and B&B
  • Farm shops

For expert advice on farm business tenancies or commercial tenancies, don’t hesitate to contact our team of experienced agricultural solicitors on 0800 2800 421.
