We just paid 85.00 per acre in the fall for the land we rented. One payment a year. He did not want to write another lease he said he didn't need one our other landlord always writes one up and sends it to us to sign. He said he didn't need one and was happy with what we gave him.
So when crops did good and price was good we gave him a little extra but now when crops are bad and he trew us off with no warning he wants not only what the original lease was for but the extra, and the other guy working with him we had no contract for he just bought the ground he wants what we paid the owners last year not what was on their contract. I am so upset we have nothing with eveything burning up.
we are letting land go and we paid the amount of rent on the written lease we had but he is suing for more money he wants what we paid during good crop years that we just gave as extra. He is not happy with the amount on the old lease which is the only one we have.
We just don't think we have to pay more that the lease amount especially with a drought year.
Can they make us pay more money without a lease?
no we haven't replied what do we need to do please? he wants the extra and interest plus damages

so we will have to go to court with a lawyer? I have just got out of the hospital and this is making me sicker.
This ground was purchased this summer by these people we didn't even ever rent to them or talk to them. They say we have to pay what the owner before got and the one said the crop year was up November 1st even though we have always just done what we could and so he cut down all the corn that was left to be used for feed and took it all.
