The Farmers’ Advocate Office (FAO) has been contacted by numerous landowners regarding a form sent to landowners or occupants who have applied for recovery of unpaid rentals to the Surface Rights Board (SRB). If you have applied to the SRB for a Section 36 Recovery of Rentals, the SRB may send you a “Condition of Leased Area Form” for you to complete about the condition of the leased area.
