Our office has helped many clients in Zoning and Land Use applications: additions, extensions, subdivisions and the legalization of uses and structures built or improved without the necessary filing of plans and the receipt of building permits.
Often, the lack of Certificates of Occupancy or Certificates of Completion can delay or complicate a sale, subdivision or lease transaction. We have the experience and ability to navigate the zoning process and obtain the needed permits and approvals.
We help to explain the confusion surrounding inclusion of structures, uses and improvements on the tax rolls: mere inclusion in the assessed value does not necessarily mean that the use, improvement or structure is legal. The local zoning code requires plans, permits, inspection and approval; long term or continuous use does not confer legal status.
