A Farm Lease Agreement is a document that outlines the expectations and obligations of a Landlord and a Tenant when a farm is being rented. A Farm Lease is similar to a standard Residential Lease; however, a Farm Lease goes further by also including information specific to farming to be sure that the farm remains productive and well-cared for during the duration of the Lease.
In a Lease, the Landlord is able to list basic information about the rental property - such as rent payments, security deposit information, and an explanation of late fees, if applicable - so that tenants are aware of their obligations. Additionally, in a Farm Lease, the Landlord can give information about what the Landlord and Tenant are required to do for farm-specific situations and how they are required to act under the laws of the particular state the parties live in. A good lease should have as much as information possible to let the tenant know what to expect from the landlord, but also keep the landlord protected in case of a neglectful tenant.
Leases can be short-term (a few months) to long-term (a year or more). This Farm Lease can be used for any sort of farm, whether there are crops, livestock, or any other farming activities or equipment.

All Lease Agreements in the United States are generally subject to the laws of individual states.
The Environmental Protection Agency governs the disclosure of lead-based paint warnings in all rentals in the States. Distinct from that, however, required disclosures and lease terms will be based on the laws of the state, and sometimes county, where you live.
