The Tenant Farming Commissioner is responsible for promoting and encouraging good relations between landlords and tenants, publishing guidance, codes of practice and has the power to investigate alleged breaches of the codes.
A thriving and prosperous tenant farming sector relies on a strong and constructive relationship between tenants and landlords and a positive and professional approach by intermediaries acting on behalf of the landlord or tenant. Such relationships need to be based on mutual respect and shared values and a common approach to fairness and reasonableness.
The TFC maintains close contact with key representative bodies in the sector and works closely with them in developing the codes of practice and guidance. The Tenant Farming Advisory Forum brings stakeholders together to discuss matters in the development of the sector.
We are proud to be a partner of the Scottish Land Matching Service, a free service offering independent advice and facilitation to those considering options for joint ventures in farming.
We can signpost to RSABI, a service providing practical, financial and emotional support to those involved in Scottish agriculture.
