Landlord/Tenant Lease Workshop – December 11th in Hastings

A Landlord/Tenant Cash Lease workshop, offered Wednesday, December 11th, will help landlords and tenants put together a lease that is right for them and help maintain positive farm leasing relations.
The workshop starting at 6:30 pm and concluding about 9:30 pm, will be held at the Adams County Fairgrounds, 947 S. Baltimore Avenue in Hastings.
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.
A UNL Extension Educator team specializing in Agriculture Economics, 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 workshop has been held extensively across Nebraska for the past two years with over 2,200 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 are tighten, it is even more important to attend and listen to the latest discussion about leasing issues.
This free workshop is sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board and the North Central Risk Management Agency.  Refreshments and handouts will be provided.
Registrations are requested by December 6th to insure adequate supplies for the participants. To register, please contact the UNL Extension Office in Adams County at 402-461-7209.
