Pierce county WI
Years ago I bought 30 acres from a landlord. It was the rest of my farm on my side of the road. He still owned a full 80 directly across the street that I rented. We closed in the first week of June. I paid him 2 months of rent May and June. That was figuring rent on 6 months. I thought it was fair. That winter I got a surprise when he rented that 80 to somebody else. He said he was pissed and should have gotten a whole half a year. This was back in the $90/ac rent days. For about $20/ac I lost the land right across the road from me. The guys renting it bought it. At least they are good guys, and I got to tile it. I should add, eventually me and the neighbor patched things up and I got to run some investment land he owned. I'll always look at that 80 and wish I owned it.
