Have you ever wondered?

  • Am I receiving a fair rent for my land?
  • Do I need a written lease for my agricultural land?
  • What points of consideration should I establish in my lease?
  • How binding is this contract you have entered into?

Please join us in welcoming Steven Walker of Scolaro, Shulman, Cohen, Fetter & Burstein Attorneys and Counselors at Law.   He will focus on business, estate, tax, succession and transactional planning for closely-held and family-owned enterprises, particularly those involved in agriculture.

Topics covered include:

  • Does your lease include the 5 W's?  Written, Who is involved, What is being leased, When will it be in effect, and When will I get paid?
  • Clarify the difference between Right of first offer versus Right of first refusal
  • Highlight points that can influence the strength or perspective the lease may provide.
