Land Use Attorneys in New Jersey Help Maximize Your Property’s Value
Knowledgeable lawyers facilitate compliance and permitting
While the most important feature of a real estate parcel might be its location, businesses and individuals buying property must first concern themselves with their ability to use the land for their desired purpose. At Herold Law, P.A., our attorneys are well versed in New Jersey land use issues affecting the acquisition and development of residential, commercial, and industrial properties. We help our clients overcome impediments that could prevent them from fully realizing the value of their real property.
Reliable advice and firm representation at every stage of the land use process
The State of New Jersey has many legitimate interests in regulating land use, which corporate entities and individuals must understand and respect. However, as restrictive as local, state, and federal rules sometimes appear, property owners can achieve their investment goals and still remain fully in compliance. Our land use attorneys provide able assistance at every stage of the land use and permitting process:
- Land use planning
- Attending to financing requirements
- Preparing transaction documentation
- Assisting with expert selection, including architects, planners, environmental analysts, engineers, and other consultants
- Preparing and presenting municipal, state, and federal applications
- Appearing before municipal, state, and federal agencies to obtain necessary approvals
Our land use attorneys have been successful in obtaining permits, variances, easements, and other accommodations for commercial and residential real estate construction throughout New Jersey.
Land use litigation throughout New Jersey
Our attorneys have been successful appealing adverse land use decisions in administrative hearings at the local, state, and federal levels. When necessary, we have taken cases to state and federal court. When questions arise regarding our clients’ compliance with land use, wetlands, and other environmental regulations, we provide highly professional representation to mitigate exposure to liability and resolve issues in a timely, cost-effective manner.
Dedicated representation for objectors and intervenors
Although we are primarily a commercial boutique law firm, we also represent interested parties, known as objectors or intervenors, who oppose a proposed land use development or acquisition. In doing so, we typically focus on the following issues:
- Alternative development
- Eminent domain and inverse condemnation
- Endangered species issues
- Environmental issues
- Landmark preservation and historic districts
- Open space and sustainability
- Storm-water management and wetlands law
Our experience on both sides of these issues empowers us to identify potentially adverse impacts and achieve reasonable solutions to land development concerns. However, when these proposed solutions are not achievable through negotiation, we have the experience, skill, and resources to fight in court for a positive outcome.
