Online Tool Helps Craft Farm Leases
Drafting a Lease: Questions for Farmers and Landowners to Ask
Land for Good has created Build-A-Lease, an online tool to help landowners, tenants, and advisors learn about and craft farm leases. The tool includes definitions, FAQs, sample language, and fill-in spaces for the most common sections of a farm lease. The Tool and its supporting content are organized around common lease content: terms of lease, rent, rights, liability and insurance, subleases, taxes, termination and default, dispute resolution, and other standard contract provisions. The Tool is designed to educate all parties and support the development of sound lease agreements.
