Note: Owner Makes Contribution With Deed combines these steps if you want a shortcut. This assumes you wish to deed and contribute equal amounts.
If you get an error that your group does not have enough land credits, first check that you selected the correct group and you allocated enough land in the first step above.
Known issue: If you have a parcel that used to be owned just by one owner and is now to be group land, there is sometimes an issue with being able to allocate land to a group as the system is seeing the owner as trying to own double the land as opposed to trying to change his or her allocation. In this case please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
