They make provision with respect to an application for consent to sublet farming unit and rent, defines size of farming unit to be sublet and the duration of a sublease, prescribe conditions on subletting farming units by sub-lessees and prescribe conditions on grazing livestock. Where a lessee, to whom a farming unit is allocated under section 41 of the Act, wishes to sublease a portion of such farming unit, as contemplated in section 46 of the Act, he or she must apply for the prior written consent of the Minister. Not more than 50 percent of the farm unit may be subleased. rent may be paid also in kind. A sub-lessor may only allow a sub-lessee to graze livestock on such portion of a farming unit, if such livestock is authorised in the sub-lessor’s allotment letter or lease agreement and may not allow a person, other than a sub-lessee, to bring or cause or permit to bring livestock into a farming unit. The total number of livestock of the sub-lessor and sub-lessee may not exceed the carrying capacity of the farming unit as prescribed in the lessee’s allotment letter or lease agreement.
