    Hi @Janepeters1971 :) Welcome to the community!

    Just to let you know, I've moved your post into our housing category so that other members can find it more easily.

    This isn't something I'd come across before, but I found the following information on the Country Life website:
    It’s not all doom, however — it is possible to get the tie lifted, if you can prove that no one has been working in agriculture for the past 10 years. If the council agrees, it will issue a ‘certificate of lawfulness’, which means you’re no longer in breach of the condition. However, if it’s discovered you’re in breach before that time, you can be fined.

    The tie could also be lifted if you’re selling the property and can demonstrate that there’s no longer any requirement for agricultural work on the holding and that there have been no prospective purchasers over a specified time limit, agreed with the council.

    Another option may be to see if the council will accept other uses as fulfilling the tie. According to Mr Prince, planning-policy guidance has become much friendlier to horses: ‘Councils are increasingly prepared to extend an agricultural tie to equestrian use.’

    Do you know if anyone has been working in agriculture for the past 10 years? Can you prove there's no longer any requirement for agricultural work?

    @Tori_Scope there is a similar thing in my village but its to do with the church some houses that have been brought  if something happens and the church needs a repair the people who brought the houses have to pay a percentage of the repairs

    @lisathomas50 that seems really odd, what if the church needed a new roof it could cost them £000's each?
    Be extra nice to new members.

    @woodbine I don't  know all the details  but that sort of thing happend the church sent letters to all the houses involved  and it is  in their deeds  to their houses but none of them questioned it the church is only allowed to ask once in a ten year span  the minimum is 500.00 and maximum 5.000 each house 

    Apparently they can pay their way out of the agreement  or raise the money to pay the church

    it it looks like people bought the houses with out being fully aware of their possible obligations to fund the church once every ten years. So if their not church goers they will fill the coffers one way or another. The BIG print gives and the small print takes away read the whole contract, documents.
