Termination Of Farm Lease Agreement

Some farm leasing contracts are not written, but are verbal or handshake agreements. As nothing is written, the parties may have different memories of their agreement, which complicates the resolution of rental disputes. The most common legal question with respect to verbal farm leasing is how a lease can be legally terminated. For both annual leasing and holdover leases, it is necessary to terminate six months in advance to legally terminate the lease. However, the leasing date (the date from which the six months are counted) is different. On the other hand, the termination of a written lease is determined by the terms of the written lease. If z.B. is not indicated in a written lease, the lease automatically expires at the end of the rental period and will not be renewed. However, a written lease could indicate that the lease was automatically renewed, unless one of the parties informed the other party (usually until a specified date) that the lease would not be renewed.

Thus, for the rental year beginning March 1, 2020 and ending February 28, 2021, the lessor must be informed (and received by him) to the tenant by September 1, 2020. The lease would then expire on February 28, 2021, since the new tenant (or new purchaser) will be able to resume the lease on March 1, 2021. However, if, after September 1, 2020, termination with termination were to be granted (or received), the existing tenant would have the lease until February 28, 2022. The termination must determine the termination of the lease on March 1. If the termination is not served, the lease for a new harvest year is maintained on the same conditions and conditions. However, if all parties are acceptable to both parties, a lease agreement may be terminated or amended at any time and may have another specified expiry date.

conclusion. A written lease agreement is generally preferable to an oral lease, as it contains a written record of the leasing provisions. However, leases written for farmland under Nebraska law are not required to include prior termination, as is required in Iowa. Since an oral lease requires six months` notice, it can provide the tenant with more legal protection than a written lease, at least for another year of harvest. For verbal leases year after year, the Nebraska Supreme Court has decided that the rental year begins on March 1. The notification to a tenant to terminate a verbal or annual handshake lease (legally known as a “notice of termination”) must take place six months before the end of the lease or no later than September 1. This rule applies regardless of the crop planted. If you have winter wheat, you should consider making it known before it`s time to prepare the wheat soils for planting.
