NC Elective

From Heaven to Hell: Air, Surface, and Subsurface Right


Description
In NC, it's assumed that when you own property, you have all the air, surface, and subsurface rights associated with your lot. But that's not always true. Real estate ownership can be split and sold, leased, assigned and purchased. Sometimes air and subsurface rights are more valuable than the land below or above them.

This course was recognized as NC Real Estate Education Program of the Year in 2014 by the NC Real Estate Educators Association.
