Real Estate Agreements - Leases

Department of Natural Resources Land & Property Management Team (L&PM) manages all real estate conveyances (excluding acquisition or land purchases) for the different units within the department.

Coordinates leases (long term, dwelling, outbuilding, agricultural), deeds of easement (rights of way and utilities), rights of entry, use agreements, license agreements, life licenses, intra/inter agency agreements, and other related documents.
