Land Conservation Transactions

Has a land trust (such as Columbia Land Trust), a watershed conservation group (e.g., The Freshwater Trust) or a government entity (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, for example) offered to purchase all or a portion of your property for conservation purposes? I provide a full range of legal services to individuals, government entities, and non-profits with land conservation and property right transactions across the state of Oregon. Areas include:

  • contract preparation;
  • due diligence (environmental, title review, compliance audits, etc.);
  • closing and escrow review;
  • conservation easements;
  • trail easements;
  • water quality trading easements;
  • wetland and stream mitigation;
  • in-stream water rights;
  • historic preservation designations;
  • property tax special assessments;
  • willing-seller program development;
  • acquisition grant review and consultation for funding organizations;
  • general counsel to conservation organizations.
