Land use laws and zoning laws ensure that the development of public and private property aligns with the body of laws regulating the legal and appropriate use of land. To develop local real estate—be it commercial, industrial, or residential—you will have to deal with variances, zoning, permits, planning, entitlements, approvals, and other regulations. Unfortunately, in some cases, the road to investing in real estate or resolving a pending land issue can be stressful if you are unaware of certain laws.
This is where an Ocala land use lawyer from Bogin, Munns & Munns may come in. Our legal attorneys may be able to help make the entire process easier through multiple services, such as obtaining relevant permits, translating land use laws, and implementing solution strategies in response to setbacks. Call us now at (352) 690-7400 to learn more.
What a Land Use Lawyer Does
From providing legal counsel to helping you resolve developmental and infrastructural issues, here are some examples of what a land use lawyer can do for you:
- Develop your project: In pre-developmental sessions, a land use lawyer can review your project and ensure that it aligns with your local zoning laws and real estate regulations. Zoning laws regulate all aspects of a commercial, residential, or industrial property. They determine a property’s usage, operations, and other restrictions relating to noise levels, parking, and waste disposal. The zoning division of Marion County, Florida enforces all zoning laws.
- Set up a new property: A land use lawyer may help you draft paperwork and negotiate contracts so that your property may be given the right permissions to operate.
- Represent you in your litigation: In light of any restrictions or lawsuits, you may choose to have a land use lawyer represent you at administrative hearings. They may challenge any sanctions and defend your project before the city council, county board of supervisors and regulators, and planning commissions, such as the Ocala Planning and Zoning Commission.
