The first episode of the series, Zoning & Land Use-101, airs on February 6th at 1:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Robert K. Scheinbaum of Connell Foley. He is joined by Donna Pugh of Foley & Lardner, Andrew J. Yule of Albion Residential, and Douglas Farr of Farr Associates.
Navigating the complexities of local land-use and zoning laws is critical to virtually any commercial real estate transaction as well as to the long-term flexibility and continued use and operation of a property. Zoning laws may limit the types of operations that can go on at the property. Legal issues relating to land use include easements (the right of access or other limited non-ownership interest in property) by government, utilities, and other entities, and issues relating to eminent domain. The ability of an owner or potential owner of property to obtain required permits and approvals from local planning boards, zoning boards, construction officials and other government/public entities is central to the interests of sellers, buyers, lenders, neighbors, and in some cases even competitors, all of which may take a position in the applicable proceedings. This webinar covers these topics.
