Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I know what is permitted or prohibited in a lease?

The best way to avoid uncertainty about permitted or prohibited uses is to be as clear and comprehensive as possible in the lease language. That said, it’s impossible to list or anticipate every kind of use. When in doubt, check with the other party, either according to the directions in the lease for doing so, or by simply asking. The adage that it’s “better to ask forgiveness than permission” is not a best practice when it comes to harmonious farm leases.
