48 Form of notice to quit

There is no prescribed form in the Agricultural Tenancies Act 1995 for a notice to quit1. The common law rules must be complied with and the notice must be reasonably clear and certain, leaving the tenant in no doubt as to what the notice means and when the tenancy is to terminate. Inconsequential or minor inaccuracies will not necessarily invalidate the notice if a tenant of ordinary intelligence would not be misled by it.
