For residential property owners who have discovered zoning issues while attempting to sell their property, our lawyers have recently obtained zoning variances related to rear and side yard encroachment issues because of the location of the existing house on the property or beacuse of the desire of the potential buyer to renovate and expand the existing house.

Our aim is to provide high-quality legal guidance and determined representation to help our clients obtain their long-term goals and protect their property rights.
