(3) The purchase price of the land and buildings shall be a nominal value;

(4) The conveyance documents and deeds shall require the local nonprofit organization to become solely responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the land and buildings, and to procure property and casualty insurance at its own cost covering the value of the land and buildings; and
