FARM LEASE TERMINATION DEADLINE NEARS

 

The last day of October is the deadline for a farmland owner to terminate a farm lease with a tenant. In Illinois, the statute states that, "In order to terminate tenancies from year to year of farm lands, the notice to quit shall be given in writing not less than four months prior to the end of the year of letting." In Illinois, most leases begin on March 1st, making October 31st of the year before, the deadline. To terminate the lease, a written notice must be given to the tenant before the deadline. For many leases, if the notice is not given in time, the lease automatically renews. Reasons vary as to why an owner may want to terminate a lease but a common reason is cash rent leases where the owner feels he will lose money the next year. One other thing to consider, terminating a lease can have many legal implications.
