Landlord/Tenant Lease Workshops This August Across Nebraska
June 23, 2015
UNL will be offering Landlord/Tenant Cash Lease workshops this August to help landlords and tenants develop a lease that works for both parties while still maintaining positive farm leasing relations.
Topics for discussion will include:
- Latest information about land values and cash rental rates for the area and state;
- Expectations from the lease, including typical lease arrangements;
- Lease termination, including terminating handshake or verbal leases where the deadline is August 31, 2015;
- Lease communication, determining appropriate information sharing for both the tenant and landlord;
- Alternative cash lease arrangements, flexible provision considerations for your situation
- Other topics, like irrigation systems, hay rent, pasture rental agreements, and grain bin rental will be covered as time allows.
A UNL Extension Educator team of Allan Vyhnalek, Robert Tigner, Jim Jansen, Jessica Groskopf, and Tim Lemmons will present information on these topics as well as common sense tips for landlords and tenants. It is helpful if both the tenant and landlord can attend together. It is also helpful if the spouse attends.
These free workshops are sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board. Refreshments and handouts are provided. Registration is requested by calling the host county of the workshop. Register at least three days before the workshop you would like to attend to ensure there are enough handouts and refreshments.
This workshop has been held extensively across Nebraska for the past four years with over 2,800 people attending. Both landlords and tenants have said they found the workshop to be very helpful in improving communications, setting rental terms, and learning about the use of flex lease provisions. As crop budgets tighten, it is even more important to attend and listen to the latest discussion about leasing issues.
