Various Native American tribes like the Paleo-Indians were known to have inhabited the modern-day Vermont starting at least 12,000 years ago. The main contemporary tribes for the area around the time of the arrival of the Europeans were the Abenaki, Mohican, Pennacook, and the Pocomtuc tribes. The Abenaki and the Mohican are specifically known for their arrow and bow technology, trade networks, ceramic and distinguished villages. The Iroquois would later succeed the earlier tribes and as they found the area to be a good hunting area.
Jacques Cartier was the 1st European to set foot on this land in 1539. Samuel de Champlain, a French explorer, would later declare this region as part of the New France in 1609, and Fort Saint Anne was built fifty-seven years later.
The British expressed interest in the territory and built the Fort Dummer during the Dummer’s War. The French built Fort St. Fredrick with the aim of protecting the region from the British annexation. In 1754, the French and Indian War broke out after which the French lost control of the territory to the British, marked by the 1763 Treaty of Paris. In 1777, the territory was granted independence as the Republic of New Connecticut but was changed to Vermont six months later.
The state remained an independent state for 14 years before joining the United States of America and its one of only four USA states that were sovereign states before joining the US. During this independence, it became the first state to abolish slavery allowing other American Slaves free passage to escape to Canada using the Underground Railroad. On March 4, 1791, with about 90,000 people, Vermont became the 14th state to be admitted to the US. This state is the 45th largest in the country as it covers an area of 9,614 square miles. Also known as The Green Mountain State, it hosts about 700,000 people calling it home making it the country’s 2nd-least populous US state.

The areas include Green Mountains, Champlain Lowlands, Northeastern Highlands, Vermont Piedmont, and Champlain Lowlands.

When buying or selling a house here, the real estate closing agent will typically use a Warranty Deed, Quitclaim Deed, or Fiduciary Deed to convey the title of the property to the new owner. For the deed to be legally valid, the document must include the property’s exact legal description, which usually comes from language within the property’s original survey. This state primarily follows the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) methodology when surveying the properties. Since this state used to be part of the early organizing years of the USA, it primarily follows the old English real estate surveying method of using Metes and Bounds to legally describe the property.
If you aren’t paying cash for the home and are instead getting a loan to buy the real estate, then understand that this state is primarily a lien theory state. This just means that the raw title of the property will remain as collateral until the lien is ultimately paid off. The most common document that is used here to secure the lender’s interest in the title is called a Mortgage.
If for some reason the borrower cannot repay the home loan, then the lender must go to court and start a judicial foreclosure which typically takes about 95 days to complete so long as it remains uncontested. During this process, the mortgage company’s attorney will also typically file a lis pendens against the property so that the public is made aware of the pending foreclosure. Once the judge rules in favor of the mortgage company, then the court will issue a final judgment of foreclosure and the property will either revert back to the bank or will be awarded to the highest bidder at the foreclosure auction. The laws that pertain to the foreclosure process here are mostly found in Vt. Statutes Title 12, Part 9, Chapter 163, Subchapter 6 .
However, if you are a landlord that needs to evict a non-paying tenant, then you would need to reference the Vt. statutes of Title 9, Chapter 137 instead. Whereas if you are looking to become a real estate agent, then you would just deal directly with the Vt. Real Estate Commission, which oversees all the licensing of the agents and most of the implementation and enforcement of the Vermont Real Estate Laws. Amongst other things, the main requirements to get a real estate license here would be to be at least 18 years old, complete at least 40 hours of approved VT real estate courses, successfully pass the written state exam, pass certain criminal background checks, be sponsored by a licensed Vt. real estate broker, and pay the various required licensing fees.
With all the rich culture, access to great winter sports, numerous annual events, low population density, low crime rate, and abundance of fresh air, it’s no wonder why living in this state is highly desirable and so many residents love to call it home.
