Throughout the Commonwealth, homeowners struggle to navigate the complex system of permits and approvals they need to develop their property. They want variances. They want tax abatement. They want environmental impact permits. But they don’t know where to begin getting them. Can you blame them? Even experienced lawyers can be mystified by the inner workings of local government agencies. An understanding of your city or county’s boards, commissions, and administrative bodies sets you apart from other attorneys and can be a pathway into a new practice area.
This program provides a full toolbox for advocating on behalf of your clients before local government agencies. You will learn about the various statutes that govern property development in Virginia, including federal environmental regulations, zoning ordinances, and state technical specifications. You will understand the process of applying for permits, working with local government staff, advocating before local boards, and appealing decisions. This course also covers criminal defense for maintenance and zoning violations and tax assessment appeals.
