A tenancy created on or after 1 September 1995 is likely to be a farm business tenancy and subject to the Agricultural Tenancies Act 1995. Differing from Agricultural Holdings, provided a farming business is carried on at the outset and notices were served, the agricultural use can be minimal allowing for diversification. If no notices have been served then the use must be wholly or primarily agricultural.
