Commercial development and redevelopment projects must encounter and overcome many steps and obstacles in order to be conducted and completed successfully. The real estate attorneys at the Coover Law Firm in Columbia provide practical legal advice and technical legal assistance in zoning, land use, site planning, permitting and all other aspects of real estate development in Maryland at the state and local levels. We help individuals and businesses through zoning issues and represent project developers in land use litigation to help ensure a project that is on time, within budget, and most importantly, completed successfully.
Cities, counties and townships all have their own sets of regulations, local ordinances and by-laws that impact how a particular parcel of property may be used, or what conditions must be placed on its development. This includes zoning for residential, commercial, industrial or mixed-use properties, and building restrictions such as setbacks, height limitations, frontages, minimum and maximum sizes, and more. At the Coover Law Firm, we have years of experience advising and representing clients in Maryland commercial real estate law and civil litigation that includes all manner of zoning and land use issues. We can help you with any zoning, land use or related matter, including:
- Zoning Variances
- Conditional Use Permits
- Eminent Domain/Condemnation
- Reverse Condemnation
- Subdivision Maps
Land use issues are often at the center of both large and small development projects. Unfortunately, the wheels of government move slowly at times, but when you are on a project timeline, unexpected delays can be costly. Choose attorneys who are familiar with municipal laws and processes at the local and county levels where your project is located, and who can work to see that any obstacles are met and overcome in a positive and efficient manner. The Coover Law Firm is located in Columbia and serves clients in Howard County as well as cities and townships in neighboring Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Carroll, Frederick and Montgomery Counties.
