Experienced Land Use Planning Legal Professionals

Land Use PlanningWhether you are a long-time property owner or are just considering your first purchase, you need to be aware of the legal ramifications of property ownership. That’s where the experts at Dickson Frohlich can help. No matter how impenetrable the legalese, whether it be a code, permit, or local regulation, we can help you understand the processes that will allow you to get the best use out of your real estate.

Land Use Planning: Legal Considerations

State and local governments are looking at the “big picture” and considering the effects of land use on the state as a whole. We have experience working within the confines of governmental red-tape and can help you understand how best to work with, and benefit from, these regulations. Zoning ordinances, building codes, and permit requirements can be difficult to understand. Don’t allow your frustrations to stifle your dreams. Dickson Law experts are willing and able to explain the legalese, so you are left with a clear understanding of the law. Our knowledge of local court systems and familiarity with state and local government officials can help facilitate a speedy resolution to your land use difficulties.

Land use rules and regulations are intended to protect landowners and users, neighbors, and the whole community. They also must take into account the condition of local natural resources and the ecological and economic effects of a particular land use, both for the present and for the long term. While owning real estate does not give you the absolute right to use it for any purpose, there are ways to ensure that you, as the property owner, have a voice in how you use your property.

If you have been discouraged by seemingly insurmountable legal obstacles, don’t give up on your plans. All regulations and ordinances have their own processes that allow individuals to challenge land use decisions. Dickson Frohlich can help you understand and follow the proper procedure, and put your dreams back on the path to reality. Don’t wait another day to get started.
