Real estate transactions, land development, HOA and condominium law, and zoning laws can severely impact an investor’s real estate project. It is essential to have a lawyer who understands Colorado real estate laws and will undertake a project from beginning to end.

Land purchases can be complex. Before you develop your land, you must develop relationships with your neighbors and municipalities, navigate the regulatory structure of the governmental entity, ensure financing, file applications for approvals, and more.

Likewise, zoning issues can be bewildering and may cancel well-crafted land development plans.

If you are about to invest in real estate or have a land use-related problem, then you need a seasoned real estate lawyer on your side.

Land deals can be particularly tricky, especially in Colorado where history often affects ownership, titles, and land sales, and can lead to disputed land.
