knowledgeable attorneys with

land conservation easements

Bach, Jacobs & Byrne, P.A represents landowners and non-profits in the use of conservation easements to protect environmentally sensitive land and obtain tax benefits for property owners. Conservation easements allow a landowner to obtain tax benefits – at both the state and federal level – while saving greenspace and other natural areas. We provide counsel to land owners, real estate lawyers, land trusts and other conservation organizations, and local governmental entities regarding options for conservation transactions. We also work with real estate lawyers and other estate planners to provide options to their landowner clients who are considering conservation as a part of their estate planning, while respecting their client-relationship.

What Is Land Conservation Easement?
Land Conservation Easement
A conservation easement is a voluntary legal agreement between a landowner and a land trust or government agency that permanently limits uses of the land in order to protect its conservation values. Landowners retain many of their rights, including the right to own and use the land, sell it and pass it on to their heirs.

Conservation easements allow people to protect the land they love. They are the number one tool available for protecting privately owned land. All conservation easements must provide public benefits, such as water quality, farm and ranch land preservation, scenic views, wildlife habitat, outdoor recreation, education, and historic preservation.
