Land Owner Resources

Dear Southwest Ohio Landowner

You may want your land to remain forever free from any future development. Or, you may want to plan for limited uses that preserve the special character of your land.

Either way, you have the right to determine today what happens to your land in the future. It is a great power, and a choice you can make to permanently protect your land from unwanted future development, or, plan for uses that preserve the special character of your family’s land.

Land protection options to legally preserve your land are made available by Cardinal. These include the Conservation Easement and fee simple land preservation, which can bring important tax benefits, such as an income tax deduction and reduced property and estate taxes, and other tax incentives. If you decide to take action now, you can rest assured that your desires to preserve your land are legally established.
