Making a tenancy application

A general guide to Farm Business Tenancies, click here.

The tenancy must meet one of the below two conditions.

  1. “If the tenancy is primarily agricultural to start with, the landlord and tenant can exchange notices before the tenancy begins confirming they intend it to remain a Farm Business Tenancy throughout – this lets tenants diversify away from agriculture where the terms of the tenancy agreement allow this.
  2. If the landlord and tenant don’t exchange notices before the tenancy begins, the tenancy business must be primarily agricultural to be considered a Farm Business Tenancy”
