The church building I assume is what you are referring to, yes? That being the case, any improvement to the land becomes part of the Real Property; any improvement removed (severed) becomes personal property (much like a mobile home), personal property can be sold, but only as personal property and that must be made very clear in any advertisement! Price is subject to cost of removal and transportation to new location, whether seller provides or Buyer bares that cost.. Not uncommon here in Florida, many areas are re-zone and historical or valuable buildings are moved to a new location as personal property until "attached" to new location (land). I hope this helps...JulioGuzma Lic. Real Estate Broker/instructor.
