The Agricultural Land Tribunals (ALTs) play an important role in settling disputes and other issues between agricultural tenants and landlords arising from tenancy agreements held under the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986. For example, ALTs consider applications:
by close relatives of a deceased or retiring tenant to succeed to an agricultural tenancy; by landlords for consent to a notice to quit served on the tenant; by landlords for a certificate of bad husbandry on the ground that the tenant is not farming in accordance with the rules of good husbandry; by tenants for approval to carry out long-term improvements on the holding; and for a direction to provide fixed equipment.
ALTs also have a role under the Land Drainage Act 1991 in considering certain drainage disputes between neighbours.
