Thread: rent increase plus a gun

    rent increase plus a gun

    Just found out that we are going to have an 80% rent increase plus a request for a gun in the shoot. We have gone overnight from being a cheap(ish) shoot to an expensive shoot. Ho Hum.

    80% rise in rent is a rip off and as for a gun on the shoot, the invite is normal as a gesture of goodwill, but is not normally taken up.

    That is a hard 1 to take, is it for this season or next?
    It seems a strange time to have a rent review (ours done 2nd Feb) althou there doesnae sound much reviewing going on, sounds like he knows he's got u by the short and curlies as birds will be on the ground so u've got no choice. Not good for the other syndicate members either a sudden price hike like that esp the way things are.
    Think i'd be looking else where for next season but dinae tell him ur leaving till this time next year, not nice but serves him right for behaving like that. Only problem is in most areas a half decent bit off ground is like hens teeth.

    Good luck wi it all, hard enough running a shoot wi out stuff like that

    If this has just been sprung upon your syndicate at this time with your birds down it is almost like blackmail. Having said that if you have left the agreement over the rent etc to come up in August you have walked into this situation. If the rise/gun is for next season I would certainly consider that the owner is testing how far he can push but it may all be relevant as to what you are paying now. A landowner is entitled to use his property to earn him a living. If your syndicate has been paying a lot less than the actual worth of the ground it may just be a sign of the times. How much are you currently paying? How many acres? What type of ground is it? Do you have areas to use for game crops?

    There might also be other benifits like do any of the members get the deer stalking on the shoot it is known to attract high prices.
