Navigating the issues that can come up in land development is not always easy. Knowing how to resolve these issues effectively can mean the difference between seeing a development project through to the end, and losing significant investment costs on a project that does not complete, or running into unexpected costs down the road.
Our land development team offers in-depth experience and knowledge of the Okanagan development market. Our lawyers have acted for small and large developers on several residential and condominium developments, along with commercial developments such as office, industrial and retail spaces.
We have represented land developers throughout all stages of the development process, including: initial acquisition of land, the planning and approvals stages, project financing, site and off-site servicing, construction of on-site improvements, and sale or lease to end-users. No matter what stage, we provide tailored, practical advice.
Our team can assist you and provide legal services in several areas:
Local government planning establishes land use patterns, which are implemented through land use regulation. Local governments may also acquire or dispose of property and assets, such as parkland, water systems, highways and utilities.
Local credit unions and community banks are more likely to offer loans to land investors, Seller Financing, SBA 504 Loans, Farm Credit System, Home Equity Loan & Retirement Accounts
