While you may be ready to break ground, before beginning any real estate project you first must obtain the necessary government approvals, a process that can be convoluted, costly and time consuming.

 

Vision in mind, plans in hand

There are regulations at multiple levels – including municipal, country, state and federal – that outline how the land may be utilized.

Builders and owners must remain compliant when it comes to a myriad of issues, including:

  • Zoning code
  • Environmental impact
  • Traffic
  • Water and sewar service
  • Aesthetics, such as signage, landscaping, and design requirements

The list goes on.
