The Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust(ASLPT), located in New London, is a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supported by 1,000+ members, which was founded in 1987 to preserve and protect the rural character of the Mt. Kearsarge/Lake Sunapee region for the public benefit. To date, ASLPT has protected 6,491 acres, consisting of 106 properties, and including 4,000 feet of shore front on Lake Sunapee. Because the organization plays a vital role in helping to preserve the special places, the views we all enjoy, and rural character of our area for the public benefit, Coldwell Banker Milestone is pleased to contribute a portion of every commission earned to ASLPT.
The majority of these properties are preserved through conservation easements, but there are other ways to accomplish this as well. Methods of Land Conservation When the Trust accepts an easement, they also accept stewardship responsibilities, now and forever. In addition to helping families preserve their properties and safe-guarding them for future generations, ASLPT also devotes itself to educating the people of our communities about the importance to them of protecting our environment and its ecosystems through land conservation. Many of the open spaces in our communities which we all appreciate so much have been conserved through the efforts of their owners and ASLPT.

You’re putting your house on the market and the Realtor hands you a Sellers’ Property Disclosure to fill out. You’re thinking, “What a nuisance! Maybe I can skip over some of the questions.” Beware – this will come back to bite you! Withholding pertinent information about the property has serious consequences. A thorough Disclosure will protect you as well as the buyer. Most buyers appreciate knowing as much as possible about a property before buying it. They can live with it not being perfect, as long as they know the issues up front and have had a chance to investigate and digest them.
Properties can fail to close and lawsuits can happen when information is withheld. Not only should you disclose current issues with your house, but it also may be a good idea to disclose any past problems that have been repaired, or areas that require routine maintenance. A word of caution on past repairs – don’t guarantee that the problems are fixed. This implies that they will never come back. Rather, be specific on how they were taken care of. Also, don’t guess when filling out the disclosure; if you don’t know, then indicate that it is unknown. On the other hand, don’t just fill in “unknown” because it is easy and avoids problems. A thorough and properly filled out seller’s Disclosure may make buyers feel good about your house and also help keep you out of court!
