Land Use and Zoning

Often used by municipalities in an effort to maintain or control local development, land use regulates the development of real estate in a given area. Zoning is the most common method for controlling an area’s development and is subject to change. Our attorneys assist clients in zoning regulations, trespassing laws, easements, and eminent domain issues. Contact our Iowa land use and zoning attorneys to acquire permits for optimal zoning in your municipality. We also assist clients with legal actions involving:

Eminent Domain: We assist clients who need to challenge the eminent domain or “free use” claim made by their municipality.

Easements: When you need to negotiate access to another party’s property, we can assist. Our land use and zoning attorneys work closely with you to accurately translate why you need access to property that you do not own. For instance, many of our clients require limited access to a neighbor’s driveway in order to get to their own home or driveway.
