If a farm is sold, the ownership of the farm account should be transferred to the new owners.
There is no need to setup a new account.
Ideally this process should be documented in the sale and purchase agreement.
To change the ownership of a farm account:
1. The existing (or previous) owner can invite the new owners to accept Owner access to the farm account
Once the new Owners have accepted that invitation, they can either remove the previous Owners access themselves or contact the Overseer Helpdesk and ask us to remove the access for the previous owners. This can be done from the dropdown menu within OverseerFM:
2. Alternatively you can contact the Overseer Helpdesk and ask us to change the ownership. We will however, need some form of permission (e.g. text/ email communication) from the previous owners confirming that they are okay for the farm account and its data to be transferred to the new owners.
