Abstract: Under “tenure review,” the ongoing privatization of South Island Crown pastoral leases, a pastoral lessee surrenders part of his leasehold, and acquires a freehold interest in the remainder. In order to determine whether the Crown sold the right to freehold too cheaply, we model the proportional difference between the price (per hectare) at which the Crown sold its interest to the lessee, and the prices paid to former lessees who have onsold some part of their new freeholds.
