I have a friend that built a home 1.25 acres on to a conservation easement. The land trust that holds the property has asked him to tear his house down. (It should be added that the property lines are difficult to establish and could be contested.) He has many acres that border the easement and is willing to provide 2-5 of his acres to the current easement as a mitigation for the 1.25 acres he built upon. He would like to know if this is a viable option before we propose it. Also, he is willing to pay all the fees to rewrite the easement/add the property to the current easement. How much would this cost? Is it a reasonable hope that he will be able to keep his house? Thank you in advance for the advice.
