land lease for more than 10 years is not legal and never has

your first 9 year 11 months and so on.

11 months. That may not be the case, but know it could be
the case given the property values rising in this area at
such a rapid rate, especially large parcels.

that pass to the new land owner and your buyer will probably
have a nominal increase in the rent as well. Usually a 10%
