    Tenancy For Life ?

    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.

    I believe the Landlord does not have a copy of the lease and neither have I.

    Am I correct in that I believe I have a Lifetime Lease and the dating on the Rent Invoice acknowledges the Lease pre-dates later Landlord & Tenant legislation.

    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. I cannot see there is any point in the rent invoice being marked "Without Prejudice to Expiry 30/06/1994" but I am no expert on agricultural tenancies.

      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...

      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.

      (The term "bare licence" seems...

      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...

      I would assume that you eventually plan to build on this plot, or sell it to a builder?

      You need to think carefully about how establishing use, as say an orchard, might affect any future planning application for residential use.

      You also need to think about your relationship...
