Zoning and Land Use Issues

Experienced San Diego Real Estate Lawyers

At the Watkins Firm, we understand that a delay in permits or a construction dispute adds substantial cost and time pressure. Our clients receive timely results by delivering thorough, assertive, focused action that protects land use and zoning concerns. The experienced real estate lawyers at the Watkins Firm work to expedite the business interests of developers and landowners throughout California who encounter legal obstacles in residential, industrial and commercial projects.

Zoning, Land Use and Real Estate Law

The Watkins Firm zoning litigation lawyers have a demonstrated track record of results in appeals of site plans, special permits, and variance from local zoning codes. We provide timely, aggressive legal relief to residential and commercial real estate developers, as well as businesses and individual property owners. If zoning problems impede your business from moving forward with your project, contact the Watkins Firm for assistance.

The Watkins Firm also handles disputes involving questions of ownership, clouded title, or objections over land use. We provide knowledgeable and proactive counsel to protect your legal interests.

The Watkins Firm handles all of the issues listed below:

  • Easement Law – This includes litigation of terms and provisions of express written easements, defending or challenging easements implied by law and prescriptive easement litigation to legally recognize and continue an undocumented but established use of adjoining property.
  • Title Discrepancies – A cloud on the title can hold up real estate transactions or development. We initiate or defend quiet title actions, filing suit to have the court resolve title disputes, and extinguish missing interests or other encumbrances.
  • Partition Actions – The Watkins Firm coordinated actions to divide property or compel buyouts when joint owners cannot agree on how to use the property.
  • Boundary Disputes – Our experienced real estate lawyers fight for the interests of homeowners and other landowners in arguments with adjacent owners over boundaries and property use: e.g., lot line dispute, intruding fences, height of structures, setback encroachment, obstructed view, or other environment issues.
