Regulation & Permits
All land use in Maryland is defined and restricted by regulations that vary by county. These will lay out the rules for managing subdivisions, providing public access and facilities, protecting the environment, developing new structures, and preserving historic buildings, among others. These ordinances are particularly important in critical areas, which are designated to protect wildlife habitats, water sources, and resources in tidal wetlands and shorelines. Before developing in any critical area, you must ensure that your plans conform to strict regulation.
Having the proper permits in place can ensure that you are complying with laws and regulation, but applying for them can be complicated. Our experienced Glen Burnie real estate attorneys can help ensure you have the help you need through any permitting issue.
Guidance through Vital Zoning Matters
Zoning matters are important, as non-conforming issues, where land is used in a way it was not zoned for, such as when a commercial property is used for residential purposes, and regulations require that you comply with local ordinances. Failing to do so can wave your rights as a property owner and leave your real estate investment vulnerable.
