Is there a problem with discovering an agricultural tie restriction on a property that has been rented out on an assured shorthold tenancy?
Morning all, Can anyone shed some light on the impending problem one might face with the discovery of an agricultural tie restriction placed on a property by the council. Which happens to be in place on a property that has been rented out on an assured shorthold tenancy? Thanks & have a great day!

Not qualified. It was the case that an occupier of a property with an agricultural restriction could only occupy the property if they are employed in agriculture, horticulture or forestry. You need to see the wording on the letter granting the original planning permission. Similar restrictions on planning permissions are usually granted to new properties, usually outside the permitted development lines or in open countryside. Dwellings connected with equestrian and fisheries businesses can be passed with restrictions as well. Was the property built with restrictions on to who may inhabit it?
