VERIFYING LOT OWNERSHIP

Before placing an ad on the properties website, we want to make sure someone else isn’t renting out or selling your property. To know that you are who you say you are, we request that you send us the phone number and email address that you have registered with Happy Trails. (You are not required to use the same phone number or email address in your ad; this is just for verification.)

Once ownership is verified you will receive further instructions via email – including login credentials.

If you are advertising more than one lot, each lot needs separate verification.

To request ownership verification, click HERE
