Agricultural tenancies in Scotland are regulated by a complex set of agricultural holdings legislation, most recently updated with the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016. As such, it is important that specialist knowledge and advice are provided to our clients (whether landlords or tenants) when considering new tenancies or dealing with existing setups.
