    Sorry to hear this. Is your tenancy related to your job?

    Suggest you 'phone Shelter helpline (the experts) 0808 800 4444 and ask, explaining it's agricultural.

        Do you live there or is it only business?

        Don't think Shelter can help with business tenancies

          Be thankful it's not a latrine?

            I know nothing about these sorts of tenancies. However I think the answer will be the same as for residential tenancies. i.e. Clearly you may be due some compensation, but "if it were you own home owned by you, would you pay £150 a night to stay in a hotel while it was being sorted".

              With a Farm Business Tenancy you dont have the right to renew when your tenancy runs out, so, if you complain too much will it antagonise your landlord so that on renewal the tenancy is offered to someone else.

                How long will the work take? Does your family include children and elderly or infirm people, or just able-bodied adults?

                These things make a difference to how reasonable the arrangements are.

                • Renting a field with no contract..

                  Hiya everyone looking into renting a field. Told them I would take it and asked if they had a contract for me to sign, they told me they don't bother with contracts they just expect that if I decided to leave I would leave it in the same condition I found it.

                  Are there any overall laws...

                  My local council gives a 364 day grazing licence and insists they are off on day 365. It gives the council the opportunity not to renew the licence again....

                  I rent a field to horse owners under a grazing licence drawn up by a land agent, one year with a break day. I was told it is easier to ask them not to renew after the year that way

                  We need some more detail, please. Do you have a written agreement? What use do you put the land?

                  It depends on (a) whether the arrangement is a licence or a tenancy and (b) if it is tenancy, what you are going to use the land for.

                  Whether an arrangement is a licence or a tenancy depends on a number of factors, but the significant one here is whether the occupier has de facto exclusive...

                  This may be a licence, nut it is not a bare one; there is also a contract. The terms of the contract include the rent and the condition on return.

                  Actually, I think it is a lease, not a licence, as I presume there is exclusive use.

                  You will have a bare license so notice periods would be as agreed. If no notice periods have been agreed, then if you pay your rent monthly, a months notice is sufficient. It is normal in my neck of the woods that grazing is by verbal agreement and in 30 years i have only ever come across one written...

                • Tenancy For Life ?
                  Another Fine Mess
                  I have been renting some Agricultural Land land since 1984 off a Public Body, my lease ran out a few years ago and I have carried on paying the rent.
                  They have a "New" Managing Agent, and on their "Rent Invoice" they state Without Prejudice to Expiry 30/06/1994.

                  You do not have a "lifetime lease" but probably a lease which it is difficult for the landlord to end during your lifetime. If, as is likely to be the case, you have a tenancy under the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986, it did not end when the fixed term expired but continued under the Act....
