Statement on ‘amnesty’ code of practice

Scottish Land & Estates issued the following statement after the publication today by the Tenant Farming Commissioner of The Code of Practice for the Amnesty on Tenants’ Improvements.

David Johnstone, chairman of Scottish Land & Estates, said: “We believe wholeheartedly in the amnesty for tenants’ improvements. Our organisation took the initiative three years ago and proposed the amnesty to the Scottish Government’s Agricultural Holdings Review Group, and we hope that the code of practice released today will assist both tenants and landlords in agreeing a definitive list of tenants improvements which may be eligible for compensation at waygo.

“We agree that every effort should be made to avoid disputes on improvements ending up in the land court and support the Tenant Farming Commissioner’s recommendations in seeking resolution through mediation or arbitration. We are therefore happy to offer our support to the code practice published today and believe the industry can embark upon this amnesty with confidence.”
