A template tenancy agreement has been developed by the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV) to encourage longer-term leasing of farmland in NI.

Speaking to members of the NI Rural Valuers’ Association last week, Jeremy Moody from CAAV said that a lack of familiarity with a useful model for tenancy agreements was a reason for the low uptake of longer-term leasing in NI and for around 30% of farmland being leased in conacre instead.
