Crofters' rights and responsibilities

Your rights and responsibilities will be listed in your tenancy agreement or contract. Your tenancy agreement may list other rights and responsibilities which don't come from the Crofting Acts, but which you and your landlord have agreed between you. In addition, you may agree to opt out of some rights.

If you do not have a written tenancy agreement or contract, you will still have rights and responsibilities. Crofting tenants have secure rights to stay on their land, but they also have a responsibility to use the land well. This section explains more.
