Tenant’s Amnesty Campaign

Tenant farmers across Scotland have less than two years left to consider if they have improvements to notify their landlord about, under the waygo amnesty. Read more here.

Tenant Farming Commissioner, Bob McIntosh has created a Code of Practice: Amnesty on Tenants’ Improvements which explains how the amnesty works and the procedures to be followed. He has also produced Supplementary Guidance to the code which reinforces the importance of the amnesty and provides information on the conduct of amnesty negotiations.

To aid tenant farmers and landlords with the amnesty process CAAV and SAAVA have developed a model form of an Amnesty Agreement and an example of how to list and describe items to include as a schedule in the Agreement.
