Eviction from a 1991 Act agricultural tenancy

If your landlord wants to end your tenancy, your rights will depend on when they ask you to leave, why they want you to leave and whether you set up the tenancy with the landlord or whether you inherited it. Depending on your situation, you may not have to leave.

The law concerning eviction from 1991 Act agricultural tenancies is complicated and this section only offers a brief overview of your rights. If you are threatened with eviction, get in touch with a solicitor who specialises in agricultural law - use the Law Society of Scotland website to find one in your area.
