Purchasing land only to later discover land-use restrictions governing the property is not only a headache, but it may limit the income potential of your property, sometimes severely. It could interfere with your long-term plans for the land you bought, or it could even affect whether you may start a business or build a home in the location. Land restrictions cover a broad range of situations and can be simple or complicated. Knowing about them beforehand is vital. Talk with us about whether your land-use attorney failed to disclose how you may use your land, and whether you later discovered existing and enforceable zoning restrictions that limit your land use.
When you conducted your land transaction, you did so with a specific purpose in mind. If your goal is no longer attainable, your lawyer may have been negligent in his or her dealings concerning your land transaction.
From water use rights to land easements and neighbors who do not share your vision for their neighborhood, a land transaction which seems good can go bad quickly if you have an incompetent or untrustworthy attorney.
