Understand Land Use & Environmental Law
Port St. Lucie Real Estate Lawyers
If you are planning to build property in the state of Florida, understanding land use and environmental law can have a significant impact on your future costs or liability. You must take note that certain standards exist in order to regulate land use. For example, zoning regulations may restrict you from constructing a commercial building in a residential area.
Zoning will typically be in one of the following categories:
Special permits are available to make exceptions for zoning laws; however, it is important to realize that such permits are given only if the exception will uphold the good of the surrounding community. Building permits are often required before development of a property takes place. These permits ensure that a city or state’s building codes are upheld.
Environmental concerns have dictated the creation of environmental law over the past 50 years. When constructing any new buildings, it is vital to inform yourself of local and state environmental law. Not doing so can lead to unnecessary financial cost and significant liability. Working with our knowledgeable Port St. Lucie real estate attorneys at Crary Buchanan can help you properly evaluate a building scenario before construction even begins. We have experience in land use and environmental law and can point out any pitfalls or problems with your building plan. Consulting with our firm before building can greatly reduce unpleasant and costly surprises after a property has already been built.
