Transfer Information,

Forms, and Helpful Information

When someone purchases a building on Colony land (land owned by the Fairhope Single Tax Corporation), that person acquires ownership of the improvements via a Bill of Sale and that person leases the land via a 99-year Lease, paying Rent to the Single Tax Corporation.


Any change in ownership, title, name, legal description, etc.

requires that you contact FSTC and complete the FSTC process!!!

Any re-plat, subdivision, or other event that

affects the LAND requires FSTC's Endorsement!

Please call the office for more information.

Soon-to-be-new lessees, either by foreclosure, purchase, inheritance, or other, MUST bring any and all outstanding Rent current before receiving a new Lease.
