Sale of Landover
When looking for the ideal candidates for the sale, Meeks looked for people whose roots could easily be severed as they were not allowed to communicate with anyone but Meeks in their first year in Landover. He also wanted them to have enough hard assets, rather than paper assets, to be able to make the purchase.
The contract was a single sheet of paper backed in triplicate that showed the following details:
- Landover was to be sold for one million US dollars
- The purchaser has ten days to examine their purchase with no obligation
- If during that time the purchaser is in any way unsatisfied with the purchase they can withdraw from Landover for a full refund minus a five percent handling fee. A key to do this would be supplied once the purchase was complete
- The full price would be forfeited if the purchaser chose to withdraw after the ten days, or if they chose to abandon Landover for any reason during the first year
Copies of the contract were not allowed to leave the office before signing. After signing the contract the purchaser had thirty days for payment.
