Please allow me several minutes to read your facts and type my response both initially and when you add a follow up question or add facts. Please don't ask "are you there", etc., since when you post it can erase what I am working on. If we are having a conversation unless I tell you I am going offline, I will be here but I may be doing research.

If you receive a notice or email regarding a phone call for an extra price that comes directly from the website and not from me and I have no control over the sending of the notice or email. I don't take part in the telephone program and only work through this format and under your facts this format should be sufficient.

Do you mean the rent on the land where the crop was grown wasn't paid on time?

Also, was this an exclusive lease? (meaning the land wasn't leased for multiple purposes)

exclusive lease
Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 10 months ago

You wouldn't be able to harvest the crop and sell it without a specific order of the court. It is basically the same concept as "attaching" a piece of machinery or garnishing an account. You can't just do that without a specific court order.

At this point you could sue to evict them and for the unpaid rent and ask the court to allow you to harvest the crop and deposit the funds into the registry of the court until the case is complete.
