Having a formal agreement if you lease your country for any purpose is a good practice, especially if the agreement is likely to last several years. By having something in writing, anyone who inherits or buys the country knows exactly what has been agreed instead of relying on anecdotal evidence – or other people`s memories. If you are renting land to a recreational rider to graze your horses, you should consider a grazing contract, a collective agreement or a benefit-taken contract. If horses are part of a commercial establishment, a business lease (with Part II opt-out) is the safest option, or you may consider renting a business, but only if the pasture is completely separate from the business. Whatever agreement you engage in, make sure it has been properly designed to avoid the problems below. 2. Full and partial laquising – The responsibility of the horse must be clearly defined and the information must be included: The conditions of the licence must be kept very simple and can only apply for grazing purposes. Responsibility for repairing doors and achieving long-term improvement should remain silent as the responsibility of the owner. Stable rules (z.B.
riding restrictions, stable time, mandatory instructions for horse movement outside normal opening hours, etc.) The legal context of grazing contracts is, in our view, very interesting and deserves a brief note. OWNER (name and address (name and address of the person who borrows the horse) – This would ensure that you do not accidentally create a lease that affects your control over the country and prevents you from claiming BPS. There are five main agreements for horse grazing: a grazing permit; common law rent; Business rent (in accordance with the Landlords and Tenants Act); Operating Rent (FBT); and «profit» take. This agreement can be used for animals of any species, including sheep, horses and cows. It is appropriate if there is a shed, shelter or barn on the property, but the building must be used only for animals and no provision can be made for the maintenance of the building by the tenant.
