Survey on Registered Heritage Structure Easements
Heritage NL (formerly Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland & Labrador) is seeking input from the owners of Registered Heritage Structures (RHSs) on our current easement agreement. An Easement is placed on a property once it has received grant funding from Heritage NL. In the instances of a few churches, contracts are in place in lieu of easements.

Please complete this survey by June 30, 2018. If you have any additional thoughts on easements or would like to discuss the issue please contact Jerry Dick, Executive Director at or 709-746-1892, ext. 1.

The identity of respondents will remain confidential.

1. How long has your building been a Registered Heritage Structure?
2. Do you currently have an Easement registered on your property?
3. How important do you think easements are to protect the heritage values of your property?
4. Please list any particular issues with the current easement agreement that may create issues in managing your Registered Heritage Structure.

Your answer
