Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I find a good lawyer to help me with my farm acquisition process?

A first step when looking for a lawyer is to ask friends, relatives, and acquaintances for recommendations. As with any business, word of mouth is the best advertising. It is also the best way for you to find out who has done well or poorly for people whose judgment you value (or at least can evaluate). Make sure to consider the attorney’s specialty, since real estate law is very diverse and complex, and farmland transactions often demand special skills and knowledge. (To learn more about legal issues in farmland ownership, check out the “Owning Farmland” Lesson in our Acquiring Your Farm online tutorial.)
