Naples Real Estate Lawyers Experienced in Regulatory Compliance
In Naples and other communities across Florida, commercial properties are subject to a complex web of local, state and federal regulations. From land use restrictions and building codes to environmental protections and restrictions on the use and release of hazardous substances, determining whether a parcel of land can be used or developed as intended requires a clear understanding of all of the various rules and restrictions that apply.
With decades of experience representing commercial real estate owners in Florida, our attorneys routinely assist clients with all aspects of regulatory compliance. From pre-purchase due diligence to addressing new regulatory hurdles that come into play post-closing, we handle regulatory matters on behalf of our clients at the administrative and judicial levels. While we seek to work out amicable resolutions with the relevant regulatory agencies whenever possible – we have good relationships with many local regulators in the Naples area – we are also skilled and aggressive litigators who will not hesitate to take legal action when necessary to protect our clients’ investments.
Pre-Purchase Regulatory Due Diligence
When purchasing a property for commercial use, conducting thorough regulatory due diligence is critical to ensuring that you will be able to use the property as intended. Various types of regulatory issues can get in the way of commercial use and development, and avoiding unhappy surprises requires an exhaustive up-front regulatory due diligence investigation. While state and federal standards apply across the board for commercial properties in Florida, many local jurisdictions – especially along the Gulf Coast – have unique (and often highly-restrictive) regulatory rules and requirements.
We represent prospective purchasers of all types of commercial properties in Florida, including:
- Condominiums and other multi-family dwellings
- Hotels, timeshares, fractional resorts and vacation properties
- Industrial and warehouse facilities
- Mixed-use properties
- Office buildings
- Parking structures
- Recreational and entertainment venues
- Restaurants and night clubs
- Retail shopping centers
- Vacant land
Post-Closing Regulatory Compliance and Dispute Resolution
For existing real property owners, navigating the regulatory landscape can be the difference between success and failure. We work closely with property owners, developers, builders, architects, engineers, contractors and other clients to address regulatory issues when they arise. While many regulatory issues can be resolved through bureaucratic or administrative channels, when they threaten our clients’ projects, we fight aggressively to protect their interests in formal and informal dispute resolution proceedings.
Regardless of where you are in the acquisition or development process, if you have concerns about the regulatory compliance, we encourage you to get in touch. We can take stock of your situation and develop a strategic plan for moving forward, and our attorneys can take any legal action necessary to protect your investment.
