Dear Applicant:
Thank you for your interest in the Farmland Preservation Program.
The primary benefit of this Contingent Sale Application is that
both buyer and seller become exempt from realty transfer tax as
long as the property is enrolled in the Farmland Preservation
Program prior to settlement. The enrollment status of the property
is contingent on the settlement, if settlement does not occur the
enrollment status becomes void.
Please allow 45-60 days for processing this application prior to
settlement. The applicant is also responsible for providing our
attorneys at Parkowski Guerke & Swayze (302) 678-3262 with a
draft Deed at least one week prior to settlement; once our
attorneys have the draft Deed, they will draft the
Acknowledgement and District Agreements that you will need for
settlement.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
