Skillful advocates represent clients in zoning and land use proceedings

Counties and municipalities have the power under Kentucky law to enact provisions for zoning and land use regulations that are suited to their jurisdiction’s specific landscape and planning priorities. This means that there is not one set of standards that applies throughout the Commonwealth, but a patchwork of rules and authorities. As soon as you begin to consider a property purchase, development or improvement, it’s critical to obtain reliable counsel on land use rules and the measures needed to secure a permit, approval, variance or other type of authorization so you can maximize the value of your investment. Our experience as real estate advisers and advocates throughout Central Kentucky helps clients achieve the results they seek in these matters.    

Thorough lawyers advise on evictions and other landlord-tenant matters

Relationships between landlords and tenants can become strained for many reasons. Regardless of which side you’re on in one of these disputes, you should be aware of the laws and procedures governing rental properties. Landlords who believe they are justified in evicting a tenant for nonpayment of rent or some other lease violation must give tenants proper notice and file relevant documents with the court. For these matters and situations stemming from lease disagreements, disputes over conditions, property use questions and other issues, our firm delivers insightful counsel to landlords and tenants.
