Balgray Ltd v Hodgson

Agricultural tenancy – Notice to landlord – Validity. Court of Session: Allowing an appeal by the landlord of an agricultural holding, which applied to the Scottish Land Court seeking declarator that a letter sent by agents for a tenant was not a valid notice and not effective to continue the tenancy of a farm, against the Land Court's decision to assoilzie the tenant from the craves of the application, the court held that the Land Court's conclusion was wrong because, inter alia, it failed to address the simple point that to be valid a notice for the purposes of s 72(6) of Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act 2003 must be given 'to the landlord' and the letter the tenant relied on as notice was not given to the landlord, it was given to somebody else.
