Frequently Asked Questions:

Can the landowner (or other persons) use the premises that they lease to someone else?

The landowner may want to use the premises or a portion for certain purposes. If so, and if the tenant agrees, the lease should specify those purposes and who the additional users – beyond the tenant – will be. For example, the landowner may reserve the right to hold a wedding or barn dance within the leased premises. Or s/he may want to give the right to use one stall of a barn within the leasehold to a neighbor. If the landowner wants to retain the right to drive on any portion of the premises (such as to access another part of his or her property), this should be spelled out as a reserved right in the lease.
