· Buyers’ checklist

· Easements, leases and mineral rights

· Insurance programs

· Land valuation and zoning

Attending the program is free of charge. A light meal will be served, so event organizers would like those planning to attend to contact the Dunn County office by calling 701-573-5593 or emailing Benz at The registration deadline is Nov. 12.
