Batcheller Monkhouse offers sensible and practical advice on all aspects of the relationship between landowners and farmers. This includes both Farm Business and Agricultural Holdings Act Tenancies. We advise on:

  • Tenancy Renewals and Succession
  • Lease negotiations and Rent Reviews
  • Dispute Resolutions
  • Tenant Right and Compensation
  • Farm Tenders

Furthermore our experts can assist you with alternative business relationships including Contract Farming and Share Farming Agreements.

At Batcheller Monkhouse we recognise the changes at stake as a result of the current Agricultural Transition period. The change in revenue stream as BPS is phased out and new schemes are introduced, and the change in emphasis on land management. Having an agreement which reflects this shift, is more important now than ever.


Batcheller Monkhouse offers advice on residential landlord and tenant related matters. Whether you need a new agreement creating, or the renewal of an existing, we are able to assist. Our experts can provide guidance on compliance requirements for rental properties and negotiate associated end of tenancy matters, such as repair liabilities.

Often relevant for a number of rural dwellings which are frequently occupied by agricultural workers, we guide clients on issues surrounding the occupation and tenure of a property. It is key to consider all these matters in order to protect the interests of both landlord and tenant.

If you would like to discuss any of these matters further, please do not hesitate to contact our Rural Professional team on the right-hand side.
