Making a tenancy application

The tenancy must meet one of the below two conditions.

  • “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.
  • 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”
