Landlord/tenant cash lease workshops slated

Statewide University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension workshops will help landlords and tenants put together a lease that fits their circumstance and situation.

The Landlord/Tenant Cash Lease workshops offered in November and December will help landlords and tenants put together a lease that is right for them and help maintain positive farm leasing relations.

Topics for discussion include:

Expectations from the lease, including goal setting for the rental property;

Lease communication, determining appropriate information sharing for both the tenant and landlord;

Relatives—tips for farm leases that include relatives;

Alternative cash lease arrangements, flexible provision considerations for your situation; and

How the 2012 drought affects leases, plus other topics like irrigation systems and grain bin rental will be covered as time allows.

UNL Extension educators will present on these topics and provide common sense tips during the presentation. It is very helpful if both the tenant and landlord can attend together.

These free workshops are sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board and the North Central Risk Management Agency. A meal and handouts are provided.

Participation is limited. To register, contact the local UNL Extension office hosting the workshop.
