Ref: 169 - Request for Information on Farm Tenancy Policy


I'm looking for your policy on farm tenancies, specifically on the suitability of the tenant in respect of criminal convictions, if tenants have to disclose convictions obtained during a tenancy agreement, and if a conviction for Animal Cruelty would affect a farmers tenancy?


The only policy we have on farm tenancies is our Agricultural land reletting framework (September 2019) which is published on this page of our website : here.
We do not require tenants to disclose criminal convictions obtained during a tenancy agreement.
We deal with the management of existing tenancies in accordance with the terms of the tenancy and with the relevant agricultural holdings legislation.
