I've been offered some "pay to use" woodland (at 50% of the cost of the annual lease) by a mate who has just taken it on.
The contract between the holder of the lease and the land owner just says
"The owner has granted exclusive shooting rights to the licensee"
If we set up this arrangement is the licensee in breach of contract?
2 reasons for asking
1, If I present this as evidence to any police officer who investigates me being on the land, is it going to be accepted as proof of permission? - My name and signature aren't on it
2 The contract clearly states any breach of the terms will cause termination without compensation of the contract so he/we could forfeit the woodland
Would a contract between mate and l circumvent the potential problem?
I'm going to run this past my FEO in the morning but meantime I was wondering what others think.
