Introduction

This webinar will cover the options for terminating an agricultural tenancy under the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 where some or all of the land subject to the tenancy is to be developed. This will include service of Case B Notices to quit, an overview of the Tribunal procedure, and payment of compensation. It will also cover the options such as agreeing a surrender, severing the reversion, or relying on Section 31 of the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986.

Some agricultural tenancies can only be terminated in limited circumstances and a strict process has to be followed with timings for service of notices - being aware of these is vital when working in this area to ensure a deadline is not missed, particularly in the context of a wider development transaction.

For those working in development and trying to manage the existence of an agricultural tenancy, they should be mindful of any communications with the farm tenant as these could prejudice their ability to seek possession. Being aware of strategic and tactical considerations in the legal context will reduce this risk, which this webinar intends to cover.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • Methods of terminating an agricultural holding for development purposes under the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 - service of a Case B Notice to Quit over whole or part of the holding
  • Options available in the event that only part of the holding is to be developed including severing the reversion and relying on Section 31 of the Agricultural Tenancies Act 1986
  • How to rely on part-resumption clauses in a tenancy agreement, and short notice clauses
  • Agreeing a surrender and when to commence negotiations, having regard to the legal process
  • The tenant’s ability to challenge any attempt to regain possession, including an overview of the Tribunal procedure
