Additional Information for Landowners

If the landowner notifies Ministers that there are concluded missives or an option agreement in relation to the land, the landowner will be required to provide to Ministers evidence of those concluded missives or the option agreement (s39A).

If the landowner makes a transfer of the land which is permitted under section 40(4) of the 2003 Act, the owner is required to notify Ministers of the transfer and provide details of the transfer and the new owner of the land (s41).

The landowner may be liable for the cost of the valuation if the owner withdraws from the transfer of the land without good reason (s60A).
