Grazing agreements and licences

Not all grazing agreements are the same. Sometimes a lease will be most appropriate and sometimes a licence. Which is most suitable for your circumstances will depend on to whom you let it, for how long, and for what the land will be used. We provide a large range of agreements for grazing, from the commonly used profit-a-prendre licence agreement to leases more suitable where the tenant is a farm business.


    Grazing agreement

    This grazing agreement creates a short term licence to graze a field. It can be used to graze any animal, from horses and other equines, to cows, sheep and other livestock. It should be used where the land is not used for business use.

    Agricultural lease: private grazing or non-agricultural business use

    19 reviews

    This document has been drawn as a grazing lease, for letting fields (that may have buildings on them such as stables, barns animal shelters or other outbuildings) to private individuals or businesses to keep horses or other animals. The document contains specific provisions to ensure that the land is well maintained by the licensee. It is also flexible enough to be used to let rural land for other purposes, such as recreational riding, a camp site business, or a sports field. It is drawn under the Part 4 of the Property Law Act 2007 Licensor and Licensee, and therefore is unsuitable if the land is to be used for "agricultural" purposes.
