As property changes hands, knowledge of where exactly the property begins and ends is often lost. When it is being sold and a land survey is done, problems can be discovered. For example, a structure may have been built on land thought to be entirely on one person’s property when in fact half the building is on one property and half on the other property. Uncertainties can also arise concerning the legality and extent of an easement, by which someone exercises a right of way or other limited use on another’s property. We can make sure that property surveys are accurate and up to date, and arrange for new surveys if needed.
Although you own a piece of property, you may be surprised to discover that you’re not entitled to do anything you want on it. Assuming your property is inside city limits, it is part of a zone, and each zone in a municipality has an intended purpose. Your use of the property must conform to that purpose or you must obtain a variance for a nonconforming use. Alterations or extensions of a building require permits and other governmental authorizations. We help commercial and residential real estate developers execute their visions and individual property owners use their property without being hindered by local zoning boards.
