Entitlements under the Basic Payment Scheme do not attach to land, but are the personal property of the farmer. When the whole or part of a holding is transferred to another farmer, the entitlements, which have been used for claims on that land, will only be transferred if the parties specifically agree to this in the contract (or it is dealt with in the tenancy agreement) and take steps to achieve a transfer of the appropriate number of entitlements. If nothing is agreed or done, the entitlements will remain with the transferor of the land.
