Skilled Assistance with Building and Development in South Elgin, IL

Whether you are planning to build a mixed-use structure or making modifications to an existing apartment facade, there are a number of key variables that we can help you consider. First, we want to make sure that the property you wish to acquire meets the goals of your venture. Next, we will determine what regulations are in place for the area where you intend to purchase. We understand the issues land owners face, including:

  • Condemnation
  • Eminent domain
  • Encroachments
  • Easements
  • Land survey or boundary disputes
  • Annexation
  • 1031 tax-free exchanges

In commercial real estate, compliance with federal, state, and local statutes is a must. We will help you understand your responsibilities so that you can fulfill all regulatory requirements. Our attorneys can also assist with permit issues, avoiding building code violations, and managing legal concerns when working with multiple partners.

Navigating Land Use and Zoning Ordinances

AHR commercial real estate attorneys are adept at interpreting zoning laws and land use procedures. We believe in practicing due diligence before committing to purchasing a property, helping our clients to avoid costly mistakes. If the area is not a good fit, we will advise you to keep looking for the right location.

Laws regulate real estate in two ways: land usage regulations and zoning ordinances. Land usage regulations guide the future development of an area, manage the activities in a particular area or zone, and define codes and ordinances for land use and division. Zoning ordinances regulate existing and new structures, control the types of structures that are built, and enforce land use regulations.

Land use regulations and zoning ordinances work together to provide a diverse, properly planned community. For example, these laws prevent businesses from setting up shop in residential areas or ensure that a water treatment plant is not placed beside an elementary school. At AHR, we work diligently to ensure that our clients understand the best areas for growth. Our objective is to avoid hefty fines and the possible expense of having to tear down illegal construction.
