Farm Lease Agreements

A large number of farmland is leased in the Delmarva region with much of it being done on a handshake deal.  Understanding leasing laws and developing a written lease can work to improve the landlord-tenant relationship and provide record for future parties to understand what was agreed upon.  Join Paul Goeringer as he highlights many of the laws and other issues that will go into developing a farmland lease.
