How you want to use your land may not be what the city or county had in mind back when they adopted their local Comprehensive Plan. Each city and county has their own unique zoning codes. What is allowed in one city under one zoning classification may not be allowed in others. There is no rhyme or reason to it. But having someone on your side such as the lawyers and consultants at Weiner & Thompson, P.A. who understand and can navigate local zoning codes and laws can save you time, money, and aggravation.
While it is best to hire a land use attorney or consultant before entering into a lease or buying property, sometimes you may find yourself in a situation where you have already entered into a lease or a contract to purchase property, only to learn afterwards that the city or county is telling you that the use is not allowed. Interacting with local governments departments and officials may be the key to getting you up and running for business. The attorneys, consultants and paralegals of Weiner & Thompson’s Land Use & Zoning Practice Group will evaluate and analyze any property you are considering for use in order to save you time and money and then obtain the local zoning approval to keep you moving forward.
