Leppan N.O and Others v King (2471/2020)  ZAECGHC 67 (20 July 2021)
Many people feel a little envious of others’ semi-permanent caravan homes, situated on a far-off piece of farmland away from city life, in respect of which they have somehow managed to secure a long term entitlement to use. These agreements risk a declaration of invalidity, if there is no consent from the Minister. This is because of the provisions of the Subdivision of Agricultural Land Act which stretch beyond subdivision and apply to almost any grant of use of a portion of such land. The judgment illustrates the consequences of an agreement to use such a portion.
