Farmland Rental meetings

2015 LLT

Landlord/Tenant Lease Workshops This August Across Nebraska
The Landlord/Tenant Cash Lease workshops offered in August will help landlords and tenants put together a lease that is right for both parties, and help maintain positive farm leasing relations.
Topics for discussion 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; 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, Robert Tigner, Jim Jansen, Jessica Groskopf, and Tim Lemmons, 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. It is also helpful if the spouse attends. Everyone is welcome to the workshop.
This free workshop is sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board. Refreshments and handouts are provided. Registration is requested by calling the host county of the workshop. Register by three days prior to the workshop you would like to attend to ensure that there are enough handouts and refreshments.
This workshop has been held extensively across Nebraska for the past four years with over 2,800 attending. The vast majority of both landlords and tenants find 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.
