Attorneys for Commercial Real Estate Development in the Chicago Area
Real estate development can provide a wide variety of lucrative business opportunities. However, owners of commercial real estate will need to make sure they are following all applicable laws and ordinances when planning construction projects, subdivisions, planned unit developments, or other uses of commercial property. To address legal issues related to zoning and land use, it is important to work with an attorney who is experienced in commercial real estate law.
The lawyers at The Gierach Law Firm, LLC have been assisting clients with real estate and business law matters for more than 30 years. As a business owner and Certified Public Accountant who previously worked as the principal of a real estate development company, Attorney Denice Gierach knows how to address zoning, land use, and other legal issues that can affect commercial real estate. Our team will help you determine your best options for resolving these matters and ensuring that you can complete a real estate development project successfully.
Addressing Zoning and Land Use Laws
Zoning laws are put in place at the local level, and a city, town, or municipality will use these laws to specify how property in a certain area can be used, what types of buildings can be constructed, and where certain types of businesses or residences can be located. Commercial real estate developers will need to be aware of how these laws apply to a piece of property, and a variety of legal issues may need to be addressed before a development project can begin.
Our real estate lawyers can review your plans for real estate development and help identify any zoning laws or land use issues that may affect your planned use of the property. We can help you prepare applications and obtain approval from zoning boards, planning commissions, or other local government organizations. If necessary, we can help you determine whether you can apply for variances, conditional use permits, or other special exceptions to zoning laws. In these cases, we will prepare detailed documents that specify your development plans and the reasons for your requests, and we will provide representation in hearings and present arguments to demonstrate why your application should be approved.
We can also help you obtain the necessary permits or licenses to develop property or operate a business, and we can address building codes, water use rights, or other rules and regulations that may apply to you. We will work with you to ensure that you are compliant with environmental regulations and address costs related to environmental cleanup. Whether your project involves the construction of office buildings or space for business use, apartments, condominiums, farmland, or other types of commercial property, we will ensure that you fully understand the legal issues that must be addressed, and we will work with you to remove any obstacles that affect your ability to move forward with your plans.
