Where: 
Washington County UME Office
Presenter: 
Paul Goeringer
Description/Notes: 

The workshop is sponsored by Agriculture Law Education Initiative, University of Maryland Extension, Maryland Department of Agriculture, and Maryland FarmLink and funding is provided by USDA-NIFA and the Northeast Extension Risk Management Education Center.

This Leasing Workshop will take place at Washington County UME Office in Boonsboro and will help landlords and tenants better understand the leasing process, communication, dispute resolution process, and how to find and market available farmland. 

“Agricultural leasing has become more complex over the past few years, landlords and tenants have seen increasing rent prices, rising number of disputes between landlord and tenants, and other issues that can strain the landlord-tenant relationship” said Paul Goeringer, an Extension Legal Specialist with the University of Maryland.  “We want tenants and landlords to have successful leasing relationships that last for years,” Goeringer said. 

The workshop will focus on legal issues related to developing a lease, tools that exist to aid in writing a lease and setting up a rental range, agricultural conflict resolution services available in Maryland, communicating with the other party, and an introduction to Maryland’s FarmLink.

Please contact the Washington County UME office for more details.
