HOW TO TRANSFER A WATER CERTIFICATE TO A NEW SHAREHOLDER

ONLY THE NAME, NAMES OR ENTITY IN WHICH THE WATER CERTIFICATE IS ISSUED BY THE ANIMAS CONSOLIDATED DITCH COMPANY, HAVE LEGAL RIGHT TO ANIMAS CONSOLIDATED DITCH COMPANY WATER.  

ALL TRANSFERS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY THE ORIGINAL WATER CERTIFICATE FROM THE PARTY WHO IS TRANSFERRING THE WATER.  IF THE ORIGINAL WATER CERTIFICATE IS LOST, A LOST CERTIFICATE PROCESS MUST TAKE PLACE PRIOR TO ANY TRANSFER COMMENCING.  THIS PROCESS CAN TAKE UP TO ELEVEN WEEKS TO COMPLETE.

TRANSFERS OCCUR FOR MANY REASONS: SALE OF PROPERTY; MARRIAGE; DIVORCE; DEATH; ESTABLISHMENT OF A TRUST; ADDITION OF A PARTY (JOINT TENANCY); and REFINANCING WITH THE MORTGAGEE AS JOINT TENANT.  THESE ARE JUST A FEW EXAMPLES.   

CERTAIN DOCUMENTATION MAY BE REQUIRED FROM THE PERSON(s) TRANSFERRING WATER SHARES.  ALSO, CERTAIN DOCUMENTATION MAY BE REQUIRED FROM THE PERSON(s) RECEIVING THE TRANSFER.  AS EACH CIRCUMSTANCE IS VERY INDIVIDUALIZED, IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT GOOD COMMUNICATION EXIST BETWEEN ALL PARTIES AND THE ANIMAS CONSOLIDATED DITCH COMPANY.

IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN ISSUSED A WATER CERTIFICATE BY THE ANIMAS CONSOLIDATED DITCH COMPANY, YOU HAVE NO LEGAL RIGHT TO ANY WATER.

​ALL OUTSTANDING MAINTENANCE FEES, ASSESSMENTS AND OTHER CHARGES MUST BE PAID IN FULL FOR A TRANSFER TO TAKE PLACE.  

THE FEE FOR TRANSFERRING A WATER CERTIFICATE IS $300.00.
