Posted January 19, 2019 - Alberta Provincial Rural Crime Watch Association is sharing the below information on behalf of the Farmers Advocate Office. 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. As advocates for rural Albertans, the Farmers' Advocate Office works to ensure that their rights and interests are recognized, understood and protected. For more information, please click here.
