449–500    Points for consideration

If the farmer landlord does decide to use assured shorthold tenancies for his letting of farm cottages to farm workers (who do not have responsibility for the control of the farming of the holding), the following points should be noted:

  1. 449.1

        The tenant must pay a rent that is not a low rent1.

  2. 449.2

        The rateable value of the dwellinghouse must have been less than £7502; or the rent payable for the time being must be less than £25,000 (a threshold increased to £100,000 as from 1 October 2010 for both existing and new tenancies) a year3.
