Alabama Zoning Update for Non-Specialist Attorneys
Live Webinar: Wednesday, April 12, 2017
10:00 a.m to 11:00 a.m.
It's rare to encounter Alabama real estate transactions without any complications. Land use of any form is strictly regulated in Alabama, and planning must comply with state, city, and county zoning regulations. Regulatory issues can impede development, and projects and initiatives may be slowed.
If you represent a property owner, you may be called on to advise as to what he or she can do with their property, such as subdividing or multiple lot creation, or what he or she can prevent their neighbors from doing with their property.
Whether your client is seeking to develop land, subdivide property, build a structure, make additions to a home, or prevent such action, it is essential that you're familiar with zoning regulations and how to abide by them.
Join your colleagues for "Alabama Zoning Update for Non-Specialist Attorneys," a 60-minute CLE webinar on the ins and outs of zoning regulations and how to overcome zoning challenges.
