Should a Farm Lease Be Written and is an Illinois Farm Tentant Protected If the Lease is Oral?

About This Publication

Generally, a farm lease should be in writing for many reasons. However, a farm tenant in possession of Illinois farmland under an oral lease has some protection under the law because such leases are considered to be leases ?from year to year? in Illinois. This article discusses why it is generally wise to have a written lease, and also describes how the law protects a farm tenant even if the lease is not in writing.
