Land Development, Land Use And Zoning
Before purchasing real estate or using land for any business purpose, it is critical to work with an experienced legal team to make sure your intended land use is not prohibited by law or local ordinance. Because of the risks associated with inadequate due diligence analysis or lack of appropriate zoning variances, you could be exposed to legal liability or an injunction prohibiting your activities on a property, which could be costly or even fatal to your business or personal endeavors.
