Estate Representation: Conservation Easement Amendment

Our attorneys represented an estate in its negotiations to amend a conservation easement on a large ocean front property in Scarborough, ME. They also worked with the Land Trust to negotiate a building envelope on the parcel and other revisions to the easement to provide certainty for future owners and improve the marketability of the property. Other work on behalf of this client included reviewing the zoning ordinance and working with a surveyor on a proposal for an additional lot on a private way. An attorney from the Verrill Real Estate Group met with town staff and obtained a letter from the Town of Scarborough regarding the potential development of an additional lot on a proposed private way that would add additional value to the land in the eyes of a prospective purchaser.
