2,984. Consecrating Other Property

Hilchos Arachin Vacharamin 5:2

If the owner of a consecrated field wants to sell other fields that he owns or borrow money to redeem the field that he consecrated, he may do so, both when yoveil is in effect and when it’s not. As noted, he takes priority over other prospective buyers. Similarly, if he only wants to redeem half the field, he may do so. This is different from when one sells a field to another person; it is a case of greater stringency regarding secular property than regarding sanctified property.

Hilchos Arachin Vacharamin 5:3

Is someone consecrates his house, a non-kosher animal or other property, they are appraised for their actual value, however high or low that may be. If someone consecrates such things and his wife or heirs redeem them, they must add a fifth. As with fields, the owner is compelled to make the first bid. The money is designated for Temple upkeep. Regardless of whether the house is in a walled city or outside in an open area, the owner may redeem it at any time.
