Even though you own your property, there are local, state and federal government regulations that limit what you can do with your land. If you fail to comply with these rules, you will need assertive counsel experienced in zoning and land-use law.
The real estate lawyers at Miles Hansford & Tallant, LLC, offer deep knowledge in all types of zoning problems. We regularly appeal zoning decisions and permit denials and represent those wronged by improper permitting of sites and uses.
