Zoning & Land Use

Zoning laws and ordinances passed by municipal bodies and the state can, and often do, have a significant impact on your ability to use, build on, divide, or otherwise transfer your property as you desire. It is crucial that you obtain proper permissions and permits as required in order to avoid significant financial cost to yourself and/or potential removal of unapproved improvements.  If you wish to use your property in a way that is potentially in conflict with zoning ordinances, consulting a professional about various options for complying with or becoming exempted from such ordinances will save you considerable time and money.

At Ainsworth, Thelin & Raftice, P.A., we can help you navigate the complexities of zoning ordinances and regulations.  Our attorneys are knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with regulatory bodies and their requirements.  We can advise and represent you in connection with applications for zoning changes, variances, permits for home repair and augmentation, and everything in between to ensure you are able to enjoy your property as you see fit within the confines of the law.
