An agricultural tenancy ends and on yielding up the tenant has failed to maintain a boundary fence. The plot has not been re-let. Is this a breach of covenant and can the landlord take action?

For the purpose of this Q&A, we have assumed that the tenancy is an Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 (AHA 1986) tenancy.

Where the tenant quits all or part of a holding to which AHA 1986 applies, the landlord may claim compensation for any disrepair, dilapidation or damage to any particular part or parts of the holding caused by the tenant’s failure to comply with the rules of good husbandry.

Compensation at the end of the tenancy may be claimed
