Real Estate Litigation
Real Estate Development and Land Planning, Landowner and Neighborhood Conflicts, Municipal Permitting and Zoning
From large-scale commercial transactions to residential matters, KRZ has a proven record of timely, cost-efficient and high-quality representation. KRZ routinely works with some of Maine’s largest developers. We attend to all aspects of real estate transactions including planning, development, title work and insurance, and comprehensive closing services. We also counsel clients on negotiation, contracting and a multitude of other project-driven legal issues.
Property rights and land use matters can also raise multiple issues, requiring experienced and strategic representation. These matters sometimes include advocating for, or opposing, proposed uses requiring zoning and/or permitting approvals before boards and other tribunals. KRZ can assist clients, landowners, and neighborhood or advocacy groups impacted by these often complicated and emotional concerns. Throughout our history, KRZ has developed a reputation for high quality representation of individual property owners, developers, builders, architects, contractors and lenders in all aspects of real estate and land use law.
Our attorneys regularly represent real estate and land use clients in Maine Courts and before governmental agencies and bodies, including Planning Boards, Zoning Boards of Appeal, City Councils, and specialized Maine Rule 80(b) appeals from governmental land use decisions. We also offer assistance with variances, permitting and other applications, along with compliance with local, state and federal laws and regulations.
Additionally, KRZ’s trial attorneys provide legal representation and advocacy services in matters such as equitable partition, adverse possession and prescriptive rights issues, commercial land disputes, breach of contract actions, construction disputes, mechanic’s lien cases, Miller Act cases, boundary disputes, and other real estate and land use matters.
