IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING HOMEOWNERS’ RIGHTS TO USE THE AIRPORT
There are several legal issues that a perspective home buyer should be aware of when considering buying a home on Crest Airpark. These legal issues determine each property’s rights to use the airport.
FAHA Members have gone to Court twice with the owners of the airport to protect their access to the airport.
The result of the legal actions have resulted in FAHA members retaining their rights to use the taxiways and runways of the airport to operate airplanes as well as walk and recreate along the perimeter of the airport until December 31, 2025 (the end date of the Nesland Easement).
Another VERY important result of the legal action is FAHA members obtaining a right to buy the airport should the owners sell the airport prior to December 31, 2024. The airport must be sold to FAHA in 2025 if the homeowners desire to purchase it. This provides an avenue for FAHA members to secure PERMANENT access to airport and that right is carried with their property!
Not all properties on the airport are owned by members of FAHA and enjoy all these rights. When buying property, feel free to contact FAHA to determine if the property you are buying is being sold by a member in good standing.
