The Act amends the Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act 1991 in relation with succession and rent review and the Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act 2003 by adding a new provision to section 9 on the review of rent under limited duration tenancies. Where, by virtue of any provision, a review of rent due as payable under a lease constituting a limited duration tenancy: (a) may be initiated only by the landlord; or (b) may only determine that the rent is to be increased, the provision concerned is void and the rent due as payable under the lease is instead to be reviewed and determined in accordance with section 9.
Amends: Agricultural Holdings (Scotland) Act 2003 (2003 asp 11). (2003-04-22)

The United Kingdom has historically played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith in the 19th century, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two world wars and the Irish Republic's withdrawal from the union. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation.
