A "Landlord/Tenant Cash Lease" workshop will be offered Aug. 20 to help landlords and tenants put together a lease that is right for them and help maintain positive farm leasing relations.
The workshop will be at Pinnacle Bank, 210 E. 23rd St., in Columbus, starting at 1 p.m. and ending at 4 p.m.
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.
Other topics, such as irrigation systems, hay rent, pasture rental agreements, and grain bin rental will be covered as time allows.
UNL Extension educators Allan Vyhnalek and Tim Lemmons will be the presenters on these topics and provide common sense tips during the presentation. It is very helpful if both the tenant and landlord can attend together.
The free workshop is sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board and the North Central Risk Management Agency. Refreshments and handouts are provided. Participation is limited.
Registrations are requested by Aug.16 to insure adequate supplies for the participants. To register, contact the Platte County Office at 402-563-4901.
