Landlord Tenant Cash Lease Workshops


Cash rent questions are the top question I receive in the office and are difficult to answer directly.  There’s no great formula or survey that can provide a magic number for every situation.  The following post provides some thoughts regarding this.

One thing we do know is that developing farm cash leases that meet the needs of both landlord and tenant while maintaining a positive relationship will be the goal of a UNL Extension workshop series.  The Landlord/Tenant Cash Lease workshops will be held in November and December at sites across the state.  It is helpful if both the tenant and landlord can attend together.

Topics

UNL Extension educators will present on the following topics, providing information and common sense tips for landlords and tenants.

  • Expectations from the lease, including goal setting for the rental property
  • Lease communication, determining appropriate information sharing for both the tenant and landlord
  • Tips for farm leases that include relatives
  • Alternative cash lease arrangements, flexible provision considerations for your situation
  • How the 2012 drought affects leases, irrigation systems, grain bin rental, and other topics related to leases will be discussed as time allows.

These free workshops are sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board and the North Central Risk Management Agency. A meal and handouts are included. Participation is limited. To register, contact the local UNL Extension office hosting the workshop.

For more information, contact Allan Vyhnalek, UNL extension educator in Platte County, at 402-563-4901 or avyhnalek@unl.edu.
