Ask Your Own Australia Law Question

as long as the contract on the renter (lessee) doing the share farming states that they need to insurer the property, then you do not need too.

if you have paid for insurance and they have not insured the property you can raise those charges against the share farmer as an expense and the share farmer will have to pay

does this answer your question today ?
