Even though you own your property, there are local, state and federal government regulations that limit what you can do with your land. If you fail to comply with these rules, you will need assertive counsel experienced in zoning and land-use law.
The real estate lawyers at Miles Hansford, LLC, offer deep knowledge in all types of zoning problems. We regularly appeal zoning decisions and permit denials and represent those wronged by improper permitting of sites and uses.
We understand how frustrating, costly and time-consuming litigation and trial can be. Our client-centered approach helps both residential and commercial property owners move past their legal issues.
Our attorneys help property owners in Georgia with a wide variety of zoning concerns such as:
- Land development disputes, including breach of contract
- Title disputes
- Nonconforming uses, structures and lots
- Boundary line disputes
- Commercial and residential subdivisions
- Purchase and sales agreements
- Tax appeals for property values
We also litigate private land use disputes for:
- Adverse possession
- Easement claims and issues
- Breach of contract
- Land sales contracts
- Wetlands permitting disputes
Our No. 1 goal is to resolve your legal dispute without litigation, but if necessary, we will not hesitate to go to trial to aggressively defend your rights. A solid case strategy and decades of real estate and land use trial experience will help us obtain the most favorable results given your situation.
