I ask because the grazing I rent from a neighbour is primarily rented out to a nearby farmer who usually puts sheep on it (fine) but this year chose to put 50 head of Saler cows and calves on it and they have absolutely trashed the place - to the extent where it's quite dangerous leading spooky horses as wellies get stuck in deep mud and you can't move quickly enough to get out of the way.
My landlord says he can't specify sheep only on the rental agreement - I don't want to pry but is it likely that there would be some sort of financial consequence if he did? And he doesn't have a reparation clause either, so the fences the cattle have trashed, and any kind of repair to gateways etc would have to be at his expense. How common is this?
I don't know if the fact that we're in Scotland makes any difference legally, but I would be interested in other people's experiences.
