Farm Homesteads and Village Settlements

Farm Homesteads and Village Settlements.

The Regulations just issued relate to Farm Homestead Associations and Village Homesteads. They will be found under the heading of Regulations. The conditions are clearly expressed, and it seems hardly necessary to enumerate them. It will be seen that with regard to Farm Homesteads the tenure is perpetual lease. No rent need be paid for the first two years, the amount of the rent being added to the capital value of the land on which the rent is assessed. There is the usual provision regarding residence improvements, &c.

With regard to Village Homesteads the tenure is also perpetual lease. A preference is given to married men, and an advance of £10 is given towards erecting a dwelling. Residence and improvement conditions are insisted on.

The Regulations would appear to be framed, so as to permit of Farm Homesteads and Village Homesteads being taken up by individuals or by an association.

In a short work of this kind it appears unnecessary to describe the conditions of small grazing runs, pastoral runs, &c. Particulars are to be obtained of these at the various Land offices.
