Succession Guidance

Under Rural Priorities rules a participant who intends to lease or sell all or part of their land covered by their contract is obliged to notify Scottish Government Rural Payments and Inspections Directorate (SGRPID) in writing within 3 months of transfer of the lease or sale.

It is important to follow this advice because if you fail to notify SGRPID within 3 months of a change of occupation, SGRPID may be obliged to reclaim all or part of the Rural Priorities payments received, with interest. Depending on the circumstances, you may have to pay a penalty.

Please follow the links to guidance, procedures and forms below.
