Landowner Alert System 2-16-23
Agricultural & Recreational Leases:
Leasing your property for agricultural or recreational purposes can offer landowners important tax benefits or additional income streams. If you are considering leasing your property, or maybe you already are, get a well drafted lease. It’s never too late. A written lease isn’t just a good idea; it’s a necessity! I’m not talking about a form you downloaded from google, but a personalized enforceable legal document that protects the unique features and facts of your property. There are many issues that you probably haven’t ever thought of. Failing to take account of them, in writing, is how you plant seeds for dispute. In Tiffany Lashmet’s article below, she provides an example of the type of dispute that can arise from a simple verbal agreement.
If you have questions or need help crafting your written lease agreement, please don’t hesitate to give me a call at (512) 894-5426.
