Land rent
« on: February 28, 2015, 09:04:29 am »
We've been grazing sheep at a local property belonging to a charity that I won't name. The area is about an acre, I guess but some of it is boggy and there's some tree cover as well. It came about as an agreement between the manager and ourselves - it saved him cutting he grass and visitors liked the sheep and it suited us. No money changed hands.

We used to put ewes and lambs up for a couple of weeks and then the ewes at weaning for a few weeks, depending on teh grass.

The manager is now retiring and I thought I'd better check that we were OK to continue. Contacted the Estates Manager who asked what we thought the rent should be. I replied saying I had no experience of this, whereas he did, so would he suggest a rent.

Got and email this morning - 500. Still laughing.

Seems reasonable. I take it that's per month?

I hope it's for a 100 year lease thing like the UK had for Hong Kong?

Would I be right in thinking you declined, Rosemary?
