Conservation Easement Team

A landowner needs to assemble a team of qualified conservation professionals to assist in placing an easement on their property. The landowner also needs a qualified organization to hold the easement and to steward the land in perpetuity; the Williamsburg Land Conservancy is such an organization.

The Conservancy can help the landowner assemble the team, which will consist of a lawyer, an appraiser, a professional to create a BDR (Baseline Documentation Report) and a broker to sell your Virginia tax credits (should you choose to sell, not use them against your own tax bill). The Conservancy encourages a landowner to seek professional financial guidance from a CPA educated in the tenets of conservation easements.

Engaging a qualified team of professionals in a land conservation transaction is paramount to its success.
