    Renting in breach of AOC

    Hi All,


    I looking for anybody who has had a similar tenancy experience and/or the opinions of whoever wishes to share them on being rented a property with an AOC, without being informed. The landlord knows that I am in breach of the conditions and i feel that i am just part of his 10yr process to get the ag ti lifted.

    Although AOC's demand lower rents and sometimes council tax, I'm not concern about the money, i knew the price when i took it on and signed the contract on that basis, however, i am not happy that i run the risk of eviction for non conformity and also, that I am complicit in the LL's attempt to remove his property from its intended use. I feel it's wrong to deliberately attempt to remove low cost housing from an area that needs it. If there were no need for it the market would determine that surely?

    Thoughts, suggested courses of action, opinions? Thanx in advanced

    AOC is keen on the Green New Deal. I'd have nothing to do with her if I were you.
    To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

        An AOC is an Agricultural Occupancy Condition, which is a planning restriction on a property.
        It means that anyone living there has to be an agricultural worker (or their widow/widower).

        How was the lower rent explained to you?
        Your risk of eviction is, realistically, no greater than any other tenant in England.

        and also, that I am complicit in the LL's attempt to remove his property from its intended use. I feel it's wrong to deliberately attempt to remove low cost housing from an area that needs it.
        If you knew when you took on the lease, you're complicit.
        If you didn't know, I don't see how you are complicit.

        You could serve notice and move out, giving an agricultural worker the chance to live there.
        When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
        Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

          I have decided to inform the council of the breach and let them decide.

            Nazmy,

            You have probably already dealt with all of this but just in case not:

            1. it will depend on the agreement but likely a notice to quit which, if the agreement has expired and is periodic and doesnt set out time limits for notices, a reasonable notice is required.
            ...

            You normally have to apply for a revaluation of the banding within 3 months of moving in, although it is possible to do a late application.

            Of course the original banding may have included the tie anyway.

            Revaluation can backfire if the property has been improved since 1991....

            Apart from getting a Specialist Solicitor to serve her with a Notice to Quit, I would try and find a firm of Chartered Surveyors who deal with Equestrian Property and ask them to meet at your land with a view as to what they would suggest it would bring in rent if they were to market it for rent. You...
