A Modern Residential Ground Lease
Introducing the SafeGround Lease
When you buy the home you’ll execute one additional legal document, the SafeGround lease, to lease the land for 99-Years. The SafeGround lease protects your rights and gives you exclusive use of the land in return for payment of a monthly ground rent.
The SafeGround lease is written to protect the homeowner. It’s a modern residential ground lease that gives you certainty as to your current and future monthly payments and the full use and enjoyment of the property.
You will enter into a 99-Year Lease, that can be renewed for an additional 99-years. That’s not forever, but it’s probably longer than either of us will be around.
You have an option to buy the land at any time at a fair market appraised value.
Affordable housing programs use ground leases to keep homes affordable. To keep the homes permanently affordable they also restrict the resale price and limit the future sale to a low-income buyer. This is done through deed restrictions. We don’t do any of that! You can sell your home at any time, to anyone and for any price.
