    Rights of farmers where no tenancy agreement or grazing agreement was in place

    I am in the process of buying land where there has been a long-term grazer, but never a formal agreement. I also believe that no money was transferred but the grazer did odd and I frequent jobs. I would like to shift the chap on, does anyone have experience of dealing with this type of situation?

    Who picks the crap up ?

    Farmers are raking in the cash after turning their fields into exercise spaces for dogs where owners will pay up to £20 an hour for a safe place to walk their pets.
