Lease Workshops

Price volatility in recent years, particularly in the grain markets, has led to difficulties for landlords and tenants to successfully determine and negotiate appropriate rental arrangements. This series of day-long workshops is being offered throughout Kansas to help landlords and tenants manage the risk associated with rental arrangements. Each workshop will be comprised of four parts. The first part will help participants better understand different rental arrangements, including cash rent, share rent, and the recently popular flex-rent arrangement, where rental rates can “flex” depending on changes in prices, yields, or both. The second part will include a discussion of ethics of leasing. The third section will provide computer training in using Excel spreadsheets. Finally, participants will be introduced to examples of alternative leasing scenarios and a decision-making tool, KSU-Lease, will be demonstrated. Participants will then have the opportunity to sharpen their skills via hands-on computer application sessions
