A level plot of land which measures approximately 14 acres, located between Sandy and Moggerhanger.

With a hedge along the roadside boundary on the A603, this level parcel of land forms part of a larger field that starts opposite to the turning to Hatch, extending towards Girtford Bridge and Sandy.

Tenure

Freehold

Tenancy:

This land (together with other land) is subject to an unwritten tenancy to a local farmer at a total rent of £1,500 per annum. The share of rent allotted to this parcel is 47% of the whole (£705). The rent is paid in January each year and the sellers believe that the term is from September to September each year. It is not known whether the tenant has lifetime security under the Agricultural Holdings Act, or whether the tenancy is a Farm Business Tenancy which can be brought to an early end. The tenant has not responded to requests to provide evidence that he has security and the sellers have no evidence of rent being paid prior to around 2006. This suggests that the tenancy is a Farm Business Tenancy, but the tenant may yet produce evidence to the contrary. Accordingly the sellers are serving a notice to quit on the tenant, which is intended to bring the tenancy to a close in September 2021, unless further evidence arrives in the meantime. The land is therefore being offered subject to such uncertainty.
