Yes - you or the recipient of the gift will become a real landowner with the gift of land.
With the gift of land comes a personal and unrestricted right of access and use of the entire private property. So you can drive there, enter the property, have a picnic there or spend a night in a tent.
In addition, you get ownership of an individual parcel on the property.
First of all, the right property must be found and bought. That's not so easy, because we have high standards and are looking for natural properties in beautiful surroundings. Once we have found the 'right property', the purchase process begins. With everything that goes with it: So with a notary, entry in the land register, payment of the purchase price, additional costs and taxes.
As owners, we can now grant rights (rights of possession, rights of access and use) to our landowners. The right of ownership runs through an unlimited lease. This is fully compensated by the one-off payment of the purchase price.
HappyLandGifts remains the responsible owner and manages the property. This also includes the assumption of all legal and official obligations. This means that the landowner has no additional costs or obligations.
The right of ownership is unlimited in time and therefore does not end. All properties have only one purpose, to grant our customers land ownership and to make them "happy".
Payment for the Land Gift is a one-time payment. There are no follow-up costs that you have to take into account. Not today, not tomorrow and not in 100 years. Promised.
All potentially incurred costs (property tax, etc.) are fully borne by HappyLandGifts. Just as it should be for a decent gift manufacturer.
In principle, everything is permitted that does not lead to permanent changes on the property. So you can visit the country, have a picnic, read a book and in the evening spend the night in a tent on your own property.
We all want the property to remain in its natural state - to the great delight of people, animals and plants.
Things that change the property permanently, such as building a house, cutting down trees, growing wine, garbage disposal or free campfires are not allowed.
The recipient gets a small personal share of the property (e.g. 100 square inches), but is allowed to enter and use the entire area of the property. Of course, this varies from property to property.
All HappyLandGifts properties are exclusively private and reserved for use by HappyLandGifts landowners.
The exact GPS data are on your title deed. The personal parcel is defined by the individual certificate number.
Unfortunately, this is currently not possible. But we are working on a solution to transfer his property to other people.
The certificates are in the respective national language, i.e. France in French, Italy in Italian plus an English translation. We wanted to be as authentic as possible here and at the same time be internationally understandable.
In the land register, land ownership is entered in the owner's name and email address. This activates and documents the land ownership.
Incidentally, we are always very happy when we hear that the landowners are visiting their piece of land. Some time ago we received great photos from a family who put their holiday in Devon to the English country estate and drove to the country estate.
