Grazing Licences - A Practical Guide for Agricultural Advisers
Granting a licence to utilise grazing land can be perilous. What might start out as an agreement to let a few horses graze, can become a protected commercial tenancy with rights of renewal.
Understanding the differences between a grazing licence, a farm business tenancy, a business tenancy under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954, a common law tenancy, a profit à prendre and agistment are essential when advising farmers looking to grant some form of ‘grass keep’, or where a dispute has arisen.
This virtual classroom session will guide you through the pitfalls to avoid.
