Agricultural land licences are ideal when you want to grant short-term use of your land for a specific purpose. For example, you might want to let for an agricultural show, a car boot sale, or for someone to use your equestrian facilities, or simply a field for spring grazing. These agreements protect you and your property and establish a simple legal relationship which cannot be confused with a lease.
Agricultural land licences
This document allows you to grant a licence to someone else to hold an event, show, exhibition or fair on your land for a short and specific period of time. The range of events that could be held is large, from a local show, to an equestrian competition to a market or car boot sale, to having a wedding marquee on the land. Since the land is likely to be of high value, the document contains provisions that ensure the occupier looks after it.
This is a licence to occupy for non-business use. Provisions in this document are tailored for land and buildings of a rural character, and it is assumed that the property would be used to keep horses or other equines, recreation, or storage of agricultural or equestrian equipment, food, or other personal goods.
Use this document to record the terms under which you give permission to someone else to use your equestrian facilities. Those might be short term use of stables, an arena, show jumps, gallops or cross country course. Permission might be for a one-off or for repeat use.
This document has been drawn as a grazing lease, for letting fields (that may have buildings on them such as stables,barns animal shelters or other outbuildings) to private individuals or businesses to keep horses or other animals. The document contains specific provisions to ensure that the land is well maintained by the tenant. It is also flexible enough to be used to let rural land for other purposes, such as recreational riding, a camp site business, or a sports field.
