Satisfying the needs of owners & municipalities is mandatory.


When you purchase commercial real estate, obtaining the necessary zoning approvals and permits can be an extremely complicated process. There are numerous considerations that must be made. Oftentimes, property owners will be required to present very detailed plans about the intended property use.



In some instances, property owners may face challenges due to landmarks, historic areas, air rights, and may even have to deal with issues pertaining to land preservation. At Solomon Richman, P.C. we work hard to represent our clients in obtaining all the necessary zoning approvals and permits that may be necessary to move forward with a project. We are able to provide seasoned advocacy and have a strong knowledge of New York land use and zoning laws.



In many cases, land use issues may be addressed by working carefully with property sellers and lenders, and it is important to be familiar with current zoning parameters before purchasing a property. Because we have a deep level of experience with commercial properties, we can help draft and negotiate the documents required when transferring property rights. In addition, we are fully prepared to work with property owners to represent them in front of zoning boards when necessary.



We understand that if you are facing challenges obtaining necessary work permits or building permits, your property is not generating the income necessary to satisfy your debt obligations. That is why our team has the skills necessary to assist you with zoning approvals and permits. Our skilled team can help you through the process from the initial application for permits through the necessary hearings process.
