UNL extension to host Landlord/ Tenant cash lease workshops

Posted: Updated:

Landlord/Tenant Cash Lease workshops offered at Valentine, Chadron, Gering, Sidney and Oshkosh in November and December will help landlords and tenants put together a lease that is right for them and help maintain positive farm leasing relations.

        Workshop times and locations include:

        Valentine: Nov. 6, 9 a.m., at Cherry County Extension Office. Register by calling 402-376-1850

        Chadron: Nov. 6, 3 p.m., at Dawes County 4-H Building, Call 308-432-3373 to register.

        Gering: Dec. 10, 9 a.m., at Gering Civic Center. Call 308-632-1260 to register.

        Sidney: Dec. 10, 1:30 p.m., at Sidney Holiday Inn. Call 308-254-4455 to register.

        Oshkosh: Dec. 17, 1:30 p.m., at Wesleyan Church. Call 308-772-3311 to register. 

        Topics 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.

        The UNL Extension Educator team of Allan Vyhnalek, Jessica Johnson, Monte Vandeveer, Robert Tigner, and Tim Lemmons will present and provide common-sense tips. It is helpful if both the tenant and landlord can attend together, and if spouses attend. Everyone is welcome.

        These free workshops are sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board and the North Central Risk Management Agency.  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.

        More than 2,200 people have attended these workshops across Nebraska over the past two years. 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.

        For more information or assistance, contact Jessica Johnson, UNL Extension Educator at the Panhandle Research and Extension Center, 308-632-1247, e-mail jjohnson@unl.edu.
