You could sell it to a charity like a local Natural Wildlife Trust, possibly?
I would investigate the tax situation thoroughly before you do anything too drastic.
Chances are the ones setting the estate never even walked across the entire thing. They have no tie to the land do it’s just money to them. Bought a large block of land here in 05. Son inherited it and sold it without even seeing it. Daddy was an overseas investor with a spoilt brat.Local estate was sold locally about 10 years ago that had been in the same family since 1066,so that must of pulled on the heart strings,if the next generation are not showing any interest why beat your self up about it,like has been said it will probably be sold when you are gone anyway,one thing for certain the land will still be here for generations to come and we are all only caretakers really
The last thing I would ever do is sell to a wildlife trust. One has caused massive issues with some land I know.
Sounds like you’ve done your shift, so why feel guilty?I’m not a he I’m a she but yes just wondering if anyone has sold the family farm and managed to live without guilt
Can one also put a covenant on it that an unpleasant neighbour or any member of his family can never be the owners?Different story if you were insolvent. Then your entitled to feel guilty. But given your family situation, I agree. No guilt on your behalf.
Can you put a covenant on the land that certain areas cant be developed?? It can be done here...
