Land Use Law
From the early planning phases through closing, the Tran Law Firm can assist and advise clients throughout the process in the following matters:
- Land use & zoning matters – The Tran Law Firm provides guidance to homeowners and developers through land use obstacles to maximize the use of the lands they currently own or the lands they are interested in purchasing. Whether it is for analyzing the feasibility of a variance application, rezoning petition or providing representation during public forums and public hearings, we are here to help you navigate through the zoning process to make sure you will be able to put the land to your intended use. We also represent homeowners in providing general legal advice on government eminent domain actions or private takings of your property.
- Contracts – We draft, prepare and review agreements involving property sales, subdivision covenants, easement agreements, loan agreements and gross or triple-net lease agreements. We can review significant legal documents for the buyer to determine the impact of any existing building and use restrictions and whether the title insurance company has covered any condition that may affect property ownership. We also evaluate whether there are any encumbrances on the property, conditions that may hinder the transaction, that a proper survey by the buyer was performed, and whether the obligation to purchase is conditioned upon successful financing. Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make and it should be made with the assistance of a professional. If the contract is signed before consulting an attorney, you may have significantly limited the attorney’s ability to assist you in these and other important considerations. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.
- Foreclosures – We represent our clients during loan workouts with the lender and advise them of their redemption rights during the foreclosure process.
