It is unusual for the city to accept unsolicited offers of donated land; however, if you have land you wish to donate and you want the city to evaluate it, you will need to submit a written request via postal mail to the following address:
Real Estate Division Manager
City of Charlotte Real Estate Division REPB
600 East Fourth Street – 14th Floor
Charlotte, NC 28202
Your request must include a specific description of the property you wish to donate. The letter must be signed by the property owner or a person authorized by the property owner to make such an offer. The city will only accept the donation if a specific public use is identified for the property. If a decision is made to accept your offer, you would be responsible for all costs associated with the conveyance, including providing a title report with acceptable evidence of ownership and ability to convey, satisfaction of all liens and encumbrances, payment of all delinquent taxes, deed preparation, excise taxes, filing fees, and, in some cases, a survey and environmental study.
