Land Development and Zoning

At the Coover Law Firm, our experienced Land Development and Zoning attorneys represent landowners, joint venture partners and entrepreneurs in developing real estate, from single lots to large residential and commercial projects. Aspects of the practice’s representation include due diligence investigations, land use applications, including re-zonings, conditional use and special exception permits, variances, and designations and alterations of landmarked buildings, public and private financing, land use entitlement and construction permitting, and air rights transactions.

Our Attorneys working for you in Land Development are experienced in matters involving permitting for an array of projects and activities and the enforcement of environmental regulations by local, state and federal governmental agencies. In addition, our attorneys have broad administrative hearing and litigation experience throughout Maryland on behalf of clients facing potential liability for environmental, zoning, and complex land uses issues.

Although land use is local in nature, with knowledge of the particular laws and political climates of the county, city and state where a targeted project is located, the attorneys of the Coover Law Firm guide and counsel clients through all levels of the development process.

Land Development also includes the laws governing land use or zoning. The use of your property may be limited depending upon the terms of the local zoning ordinance. However, there are several approaches for handling conflicts between zoning regulations and your desired property use. Our attorneys at the Coover Law Firm have experience in the matter of zoning and usage.
