Marketing of Agricultural Land
Adv. Hagit Ben Moshe, who leads the kibbutz and agricultural sector at our firm, was interviewed by TheMarker. Hagit emphasized in the interview that purchasing land, unlike buying an apartment, is primarily at the theory level. "In most cases, companies in this field sell you an option to rights in the land, dependent on several conditions, such as changing the land's designation and completing the planning. Unless the plan is already approved, no one can guarantee you with any certainty on when or if the conditions will be met and your dreams will come true. We've encountered several cases where people buy agricultural land based on promises from the authorities, and then the authorities back down from the plans, or even expropriate the land for themselves. If the authorities cannot provide certainty, then certainly the people in sales offices can’t either."
