Property owners in Florida seek to maintain or increase the value of their property. There are many steps one can take to make his or her individual property hold more value. However, there are certain land use and zoning laws that could also impact the valuation of property. By seeking a zoning change, certain properties could gain value, allowing them to be at their best and their highest use. However, the opposite could occur if the government instills a downzoning.
In cases of eminent domain, zoning issues can present themselves. This can become complex very quickly, causing property owners to be unsure of the steps they could take to better their situation and protect their rights. At the Property Rights Law Firm, P.A., our skilled attorneys understand how zoning changes can dramatically impact the value of the property as well as the outcome of an eminent domain lawsuit.

Our goal is to help our clients illustrate that his or her property would gain value if such a zoning change did occur.
