Illicit Conviction

The success or failure of a tenanted agricultural holding relies heavily upon the landlord/ tenant relationship with both parties working in partnership to the benefit of each other. Under the terms of Agriculture (Scotland) Act, 1948, Schedules 5 and 6, a landlord of an agricultural holding has a responsibility to manage the land and provide all means necessary to operate the unit as an agricultural holding in accordance with the rules of good estate management i.e. the landlord has to provide, repair and improve fixed equipment e.g. sheds, drainage, fences, etc such that the occupier of the land can efficiently maintain adequate production of quality produce.
