This short term Grazing Agreement can be used in Scotland where the permitted purpose is restricted to the trade or business of grazing livestock owned by the tenant. Under Scottish law, a grazing let cannot exceed 364 days. In view of its short term, the tenant takes the fences and other fixed equipment on an "as is" basis with neither party being under any obligation to maintain or repair and the rent is not reviewable.

The Landlord can pre-let a series of < 364 day grazing agreements (e.g. February to October in 2006, 2007, etc) but there must be a break between each one of at least one day when the tenant actually does vacate the land. It is essential to get professional advice to avoid such an arrangement being construed as a Short Limited Duration Tenancy or a Limited Duration Tenancy involving the landlord in onerous repairing etc. responsibilities.

No pre-tenancy notices are required in Scotland.
