Crystal Lake Real Estate Attorneys Representing Homeowners and Commercial Developers With Planning and Zoning Matters

Whether you are a residential or commercial property owner, you may have big plans for your land. You might be ready to develop a commercial building to sell or with multiple units to lease. You may intend to build your dream home or renovate and expand the current house on the property. To move forward with any of these projects, you will have to consider your local planning, land use, and zoning laws. Some requests may receive quick approval from local authorities. However, when you have bigger dreams, the process through local committees and commissions can be stressful.

The real estate attorneys of Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC are ready to help. We understand how important it is to stay on schedule and budget for both residential and commercial real estate developments and transactions. With decades of experience behind us, we can help you every step of the way to ensure you see your plans come to fruition.

We Can Help You With Plans for Your Home

It is all too easy for you, as an individual homeowner, to violate a local ordinance you knew nothing about. Some counties, cities, and villages have extensive zoning and design regulations that dictate what you can build and where on your property. It may rub you the wrong way that you have to follow rules in regard to your own property. Unfortunately, it is the way it is.

Building on your land without understanding the relevant ordinances and obtaining the necessary permits could be a costly mistake. You could be forced to tear something down or move and rebuild it, doubling or tripling your expenses on the project. Before you undergo renovations on your land, break ground on an addition, or add that shed you have been eyeing for years, contact our planning and zoning lawyers at Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC. We are available to review your plans, explain the pertinent laws, and represent you in obtaining the necessary approvals and permits.

We Can Support Your Commercial Development Project

Whether you intend to construct an entirely new commercial building or you own a structure that requires extensive renovations, contact us at Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC right away.
