1. How do I know this is not a fraud?
We think, skepticism is a good and healthy thing, but when you are selling a ground breaking product, and you're doing it on a legal basis, correctly and with the best of intentions, skepticism can become a real problem. We do receive, from time to time, a few understandable inquirers asking us if this is a joke or not. We know that the Internet contains many joke sites, as well as many unrepeatable sites designed for purely fraudulent purposes.
We would like to reassure you that this is not such a site. However, due to the uniqueness of the product on sale here, we wish to give you this written reassurance. It is of course difficult to determine if this is a fraudulent item while you are just sitting there surfing the net. Let us explain what Lunar Landis actually doing. We have been in the business of selling Lunar Property for decades. In all this time, and millions of customers later (and increasing rapidly), we have never had a single unsatisfied customer. We are very proud of this track record. Two former US Presidents and many very prominent celebrities own their Lunar property already. The worldwide press attention Lunar Land is receiving is enormous. (Please view the Press section of our web site for further information.)
If you still think this is a fraud, we would like you to ask one of the Internet's best known and vigilant consumer watchdog organizations called Better Business Bureau. There you can consult our company register, and see if anyone has filed a complaint against our company. Furthermore, you cannot become a member of Better Business Bureau unless you conduct a legitimate business. If you are still skeptical after that, well, we still don't blame you. Selling property on the Moon through the internet must surely be one of the strangest things you've ever come across.
2. What is Lunar Land Company's legal basis for selling
Well, there are several parts to this answer. First, if you want to sell
extraterrestrial property (or Earth property for that matter) it must
be yours. If the property never belonged to anyone, like the Moon or the
other eight planets, you must establish a legal basis of ownership.
Contrary to popular belief, ownership by individuals of
extraterrestrial properties is not forbidden. The 1967 UN Outer Space
Treaty stipulates that no government can own extraterrestrial property,
but it neglected to mention individuals or corporations. In 1984, the
UN attempted to plug this loophole (which they where very aware of), by
introducing the ill-fated Moon Treaty. That treaty forbids the exploitation
of extraterrestrial resources (which includes ownership) for anyone, also
individuals and corporations. The only problem is, that when it was up
for vote, out of 185 UN Member Nations, only six supported it. The vast
majority of Member States refused to sign it and did not sign it. This
makes sense too. Imagine if we find oil on the Moon for example. Should
we prohibit its exploitation for the entire human race by law? Surely
not. So, to make a long story short, the loophole still exists today,
and for a reason. (More details can be found under our Space Law FAQ section.)
Therefore, one can become the legal owner of an extraterrestrial
body, if you are the first one that claimed it.
It's a bit like in the old west: Who stakes their claim
on a piece of land first, gets the best property. This is modeled on old
American law. Such a claim must be registered with your local Governmental
Office for claim registries. In regard to Lunar properties, it obviously
helps, if this is also done in the USA, as the Americans were the first
to walk on the Moon and plant their flag on it. (It could be argued, that
if the Moon ever belonged to anyone, it certainly belongs more to the
USA than any other nation).
The kindest reaction of the US Government was actually, that
two former Presidents became Moon property owners.
Finally, please note, that there are a few copycat web sites that have appeared on the Internet also selling extraterrestrial properties. These companies have never made a claim, nor can prove such a claim. Furthermore, they are infringing on Lunar Land's copyright and trademark...and worse...they are pretending to sell our (and your) property! (Needless to say Lunar Land has begun taking legal actions against these fraudulent companies.) If you see such a web site ask them what their legal basis is for selling extraterrestrial properties. Regardless of what they may have or will tell you, please know, Lunar Land was one of the first to sell extraterrestrial property on any celestial body. But as with all good things, good ideas get copied, whether it's illegal to do so or not seems not to affect these people.
3. If this is for real? Why is it a novel
We use this statement in two contexts: The first as defined in the American
Heritage Dictionary. The quality of being novel: 1) something new and
unusual and 2) a small mass-produced article. Well, property on the Moon
definitely falls into these categories.
The second context is on the recommendation from our legal team when this all began. Classifying the Lunar Land property as a novelty gift helps to avoid any frivolous lawsuits from a foreign country. You should know that this does not diminish the value of the property that you purchase in any way. Every deed is recorded and registered in the International Association Of Human Planetary Exploration (IAOHPE) registration database and every owner's information is listed within that registration.
4. Why is it so cheap?
If it's expensive, not everyone will be able to own land on the moon estate
property which would take all the fun and romance out of it. After all,
this is an exciting adventure and we wish to share this with as many people
who would like to share it with us. So join the lunar land registry today!
5. What name will appear on the deed?
If you purchase the Standard Gift Package, the deed comes sealed in a gift pack without a name printed on it. This allows you to fill in your own name or the name of another if you were giving the property as a gift or otherwise.
If you purchased any other Gift Package, the name you specify in the checkout process will be imprinted on the deed. here.
Registering your acre of the Moon is an easy yet important part of the package. Each deed of Lunar Land property is unique and no acre of land can be sold twice. Providing the necessary information for the new land owner to be registered with the International Association Of Human Planetary Exploration (IAOHPE) ensures that the property holder is listed on file in the database for all landowners.
(Please note that your deed and title are intended to represent legal documents. Please enter the complete, full legal name of the property owner on the Lunar Land Deed.)
6. Can I charge NASA if they land on my property?
No you can't. No celestial body is owned by NASA and
they have never claimed them.
Further, the Outer Space Treaty of 1967, which is law, clearly
states that the Moon and the other celestial bodies are the heritage
of all mankind for the purposes of exploration. So NASA can do
what they like and where they like, as long as they are exploring.
But if someone wants to build a house or drill for minerals or
water on your property, that is quite a different issue altogether.
Lunar Land has never and will never sell a past or
planned NASA landing site on any celestial body.
7. What guarantee do I have that you won't sell
the same property twice?
No property is sold twice. The land has been carefully mapped out and
a database is held of all property registrations in the official lunar land register and with the International Association Of Human Planetary Exploration (IAOHPE).
8. What if someone else tries to sell me land on
Should anyone else claim to be selling Lunar Land property, they are doing
so in an unlawful manner.
These companies have never made, nor
can prove such a claim. Furthermore, they are infringing on the Lunar
Land company trademark and copyright...and worse...they are pretending to sell our (and
your) property! (Needless to say Lunar Land has begun taking legal
actions against these fraudulent companies.) If you see such a web site,
ask them what their legal basis is for selling extraterrestrial properties.
9. Will my children inherit the property?
Absolutely, or whomever you decide to leave it to. This is actually
one of the important points about buying an acre of land on the moon, planet mars, planet venus, planet mercury, or even planet jupiter moon io estate property.
It may turn out to become a valuable investment to future generations.
Lunar Land Owner may not be able to get there yet and live there on a constant basis,
but it is pretty certain that one day we will be able to live on many
planets and moons in the Solar System. In a few hundred years for example,
large colonies on the Moon and even Planet Mars are a probable reality. The Artemis Project
is already planning a profitable lunar venture and colony, and the Japanese
are planning to go back to the Moon for commercial reasons since quite
some time now. Undoubtedly, it will happen.
10. Can I buy one of the NASA landing sites?
Unfortunately, certain places on the Moon and the other planets
are not for sale because we firmly believe that they should remain for
the good of all Mankind. This includes all the Apollo Landing sites, the
Viking and Pathfinder landing sites, the Face and Pyramids of Mars, as
well as the crater on the Moon on which water has apparently been found,
but not yet confirmed. It would be irresponsible of Lunar Land
to sell these historic areas and sole natural resources.
Furthermore, you should know, that the Outer Space Treaty
of 1967 declares the Moon as "the heritage of all Mankind, for the
purposes of exploration", and that is pretty clear and unambiguous.
This means that even if you have your property, if NASA wishes to land
on it to explore, they can, and they have a perfect legal right to do
so. If however someone wants to land on your property to do something
else, such as build or mine minerals, that is a different issue entirely.
Yes, this does mean that NASA can go where they wish.
Apart from that, we at the Lunar Land company have no desire at all to stop
NASA doing what it is that they do best, even if the bodies in question
have been claimed by us. After all, without these pioneers, we wouldn't
even know what the place looks like, never mind be able to sell it.
11. So what about the future?
Lunar Land is currently in the process of preparing the
sale of property on Mars, Venus, and Jupiter Moon's
Io. Also, other planets and moons within our solar system are being considered.
Will new laws be established? Well, so far, we are not aware of anyone
trying to make them, nor are we aware of anyone who has the jurisdiction
to make them.
12. And the most important point?
In all of that, let's not miss the most important point of all....and
it specifically applies to the Moon: What is the Moon to us?
The Moon is a symbol of hope, romance, achievement and change, all rolled
into one. There is nothing more symbolic and romantic on Earth one can
give to a loved one. It is not a fad we can toy with, it is not something
that will ever lose its appeal. When you buy your property on the Moon
or any other planet, please enjoy it, because that is what this really
is all about. You can look into the night sky and say "I own a piece
