Identify the property or properties you want to buy.
Mail a completed Property Request Form to Land Trust, c/o Michael B. Hunter, Land Commissioner, 4035 Central, Kansas City, Mo., 64111.
Land Trust will use their valuation process to determine the value of the property for which you submitted a form.
Once the appraised value is established by the establish appraised process and you have been notified, you can proceed with the purchase or stop. If you decide to go forward, then you must submit a cashier’s check or money order, payable to “Land Trust of Jackson County” for the appraised value plus $24, the charge to record the deed. If you choose not to buy the property or simply do not buy the property within 30 days after you have been advised of the value, then the process ends.
When Land Trust receives the cashier’s check or money order purchase funds, the proposed sale is submitted for final approval to the Board of Trustees for Land Trust when it generally meets on the fourth Wednesday of the month. The cutoff for sales to be submitted is generally 12:00 p.m. on the Friday before the Trustees' meeting. When the board approves the sale, a special warranty deed is prepared and recorded to complete the transaction. Such deed is mailed to the buyer by the Office of Records after it has completed the recording process.
