Updated Tenancy Agreement

In order to bring the Tenancy Agreement up to date YACIO has made a few changes to the Terms and Conditions set out as standard for all of our Tenancies.

A summary of the changes is as follows:

Clause 1 – Your deposit may be withheld if the plot is not in a lettable condition when your tenancy ends.

Clause 3 – YACIO’s policy on antisocial and abusive behaviour has been clarified.

Clause 5 – Confusing wording has been amended. (Fruit Trees can be pruned without permission, all other trees still require permission.)

Clause 8 – Hedges and fences should not exceed 1.5m. Tenants should gradually reduce the height of existing boundaries where this limit is exceeded.

Clause 9 – No barbed wire is to be used anywhere on the allotments.

Clause 10 – No sprinklers should ever be used for watering crops and water supplies should only be used for watering crops.

These changes will come into force from the 1st January 2021. Payment of your annual invoice (sent to you by post in January) will be deemed acceptance of the new terms and conditions. If you feel for any reason that you are unable to comply with these amendments then please let us know as soon as possible that you wish to terminate your tenancy as of 31st December 2020.
