Construction, Development and Zoning Situations
Every real estate development project affects numerous people — individuals, surrounding businesses, municipalities, purchasers and sellers of land — often with a complicated number of solutions. The Rosenn Jenkins & Greenwald LLP real estate department has extensive experience working with developers, as well as with architects, designers, contractors, builders and engineers. We represent developers, individuals and other clients in Northeastern Pennsylvania with purchases of developed and vacant land, the sale and lease of developed properties, the obtainment of real estate entitlements, and litigation and resolution of construction defect claims.
In addition, we provide legal advice and support for — and help to navigate developers through — the following issues:
- Growth management
- Historic preservation
- Nonconforming uses and structures
- Environmentally sensitive development
- Conservation easements
- Other issues in land use law
We provide contract review, negotiation and drafting services related to real estate development in Northeastern Pennsylvania as well as resolving highly complex development disputes. In addition, we perform due diligence, negotiation of financing and loan documents, and other transactional services for all of our development clients.
