Opportunity to find out more about join industry initiatives

Landlords and tenant farmers will have the opportunity to find out more about joint industry initiatives in tenant farming at a roadshow in Inverness on 18th November at the Inverness Thistle Hotel. This is part of a series of roadshows taking place across Scotland in the next few months.

At each roadshow, industry advisers will be present to explain the work being carried out to develop joint industry guidance and to help landlords and tenant farmers with a range of issues  including rent reviews, tenant's improvements and landlord/tenant obligations

Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs, Food and the Environment, Richard Lochhead MSP said: These roadshows are the ideal opportunity for landlords and tenants to find out about the intiatives that Andrew Thin, the Scottish Government' s independent adviser on tenant farming has been working on together with key stakeholders and I would encourage all those with an interest to attend.

Andrew Thin said: In most cases the partnership between landlord and tenant that underpin tenant farming work well but in a few cases relationships are not as constructive and collaborative as they need to be . The purpose of the joint industry guidance is to provide a clear framework which will help to eliminate this sort of problem and ensure balance, mutual respect and a modern 21st century approach to these relationships.

The Inverness meeting will begin at 7.00pm and conclude at around 9.00pm
