A tenant may carry out any improvement on the farm with the consent of the owner; in this case the owner shall pay the tenant the agreed amount. Likewise, the owner shall pay fair compensation to the tenant for improvements carried out without consent if: (1) the improvement belongs to those mentioned in Schedule 1 or is a work or thing prescribed by the regulations; or (2) the improvement is first determined by arbitration to be suitable and desirable.
