Right of First Refusal or Purchase of LandCan I give the Land Trust the first opportunity to buy my property when I decide to sell it?
A landowner who cannot afford to donate or bargain-sell their property to the Land Trust may consider a right of first refusal. This right provides the Land Trust with the opportunity to match a purchase offer received by the owner at a future time if and when the owner elects to sell the property.
Will the Land Trust purchase my land outright?
Occasionally, the Land Trust is called upon to protect a property that has exceptional resource value of local, regional, or statewide significance. Such purchases depend on public and private fundraising. The majority of our land protection projects are focused on donated land and conservation easements.
How can I find out more information?
Call the main office at (607) 275-9487 or write or e-mail the Finger Lakes Land Trust to talk with a staff member about your conservation goals.
