Landlord, tenant lease workshop set for Nov. 6
The Landlord/Tenant Cash Lease workshop is designed to help landlords and tenants put together a lease that is right for them and help maintain positive farm leasing relations.
The workshop will be at the Dawes Fairgrounds 4-H Building in Chadron, Neb., from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Nov. 6.
Topics for discussion include:
Latest information about land values and cash rental rates for the area and state;
Expectations from the lease, including goal setting for the rental property;
Lease termination, including terminating handshake or verbal leases;
Lease communication, determining appropriate information sharing for both the tenant and landlord;
Alternative cash lease arrangements, flexible provision considerations for your situation; and
Other topics, like irrigation systems, hay rent, pasture rental agreements, and grain bin rental will be covered as time allows.
The UNL Extension Educator team of Allan Vyhnalek, Jessica Johnson, Monte Vandeveer, Robert Tigner, and Tim Lemmons, will be the presenters and provide common sense tips during the presentation. It is helpful if both the tenant and landlord can attend together as well as their spouses attend. This free workshop is sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board and the North Central Risk Management Agency.
Refreshments and handouts are provided. Registration is requested by calling the host county of the workshop. This workshop has been conducted extensively across Nebraska for the past two years with more than 2,200 people attending. Most landlords and tenants find the workshop to be helpful in improving communications, setting rental terms, and learning about the use of flex lease provisions. As crop budgets are tightening, it is important to listen to the latest discussion about leasing issues. To register, contact the Dawes Extension County Office at 308-432-3373.
