Zoning Law Legal Support in St. Petersburg, FL

If you are a landowner or a developer, you will need legal support for nearly every one of your jobs. There are many logistics and regulations that need to be followed in Florida related to various kinds of land use projects, and you cannot skip over these important items when you are in charge of a job. No matter what kind of building or development you are working on, there will be documentation that needs to be done.

Trying to go it alone when working on these kinds of jobs is never a good idea. There is too much at stake if you don’t take care of the documentation for every job with care. You will need to work with a skilled zoning legal expert for all of your building and land development jobs in Florida. Keeping building and zoning projects on track can make all the difference in your bottom line and in the ease with which you complete each job.

Zoning Use Guidance and Zoning Permitting

Every piece of land that you own needs to be properly assessed and assigned the correct zoning before it can be developed. If this process has been done, it can still be confusing to understand what is allowed use for each piece of property. The team at Lopez Law can help you to get the zoning process completed on all the properties that you own, and we can also help you to understand what permitted uses your property is eligible for.

Knowing in advance what the zoning of your property will allow is critical if you are going to build anything on it, or if you are going to sell it for a specific purpose. You will also have a much better idea of the budget to allow for your job if you have the right zoning in place well before you start development plans. There are so many aspects of each development project that depend entirely upon the zoning of your investment.

If you have a property in hand that offers access to mixed zoning, you can also count on us to help you to ascertain which of the uses is the right one to focus on developing. There might be more profit and fewer legal roadblocks along one course of development than another. The team at Lopez Law can help you to navigate the choice between various use opportunities to find the right investment solution for your money.

Plat and Site Plan Applications

If you are going to build a development in St. Petersburg, FL, you need to have the right plat and site planning to make the most of the space. These plans will have to be approved and recorded with the municipal authorities and the county. We will help you to create correct and definitive plat and site plan documents for all of your projects that will be approved with ease.

The plat and site planning that you use for your development must be approved and correct for the job to proceed. You will not be able to do any work on your planned community until this step has been completed. This is why it is so critical to have the correct documentation on file before you work on any other steps of the process to build. We can take care of your plat and site planning with ease so that you can have a seamless build process for your job.

Planned Unit Development Jobs

If you are working with various investors or you are going to create a planned community all on your own, you need to make sure that your mixed-use zoning and all of the other necessary permitting and documentation are filed and approved before the project can break ground. The team at Lopez Law are experts in this area of Zoning Law, and we will ensure that all of your planned community development projects avoid being held up due to documentation issues or things that have been overlooked.

Environmental Impact Review

There are frequent changes to the environmental laws that govern all kinds of different development properties, and even if you have had a property zoned and have completed the right permits, you might have missed a step without an environmental impact review. You need to be sure that you are aware of the potential limitations to the use of any property related to the environmental care and restrictions that could be required by the county or the state of Florida.

Environmental reviews can be required for all kinds of different projects, and you should not assume that your project is exempt just because it is located in town. You might need to comply with a variety of regulatory requirements to be allowed to build the kind of structures that you are planning on the property, or you could even be prevented from developing the property at all. There are many reasons why you might need to have an environmental impact review completed early in the planning process to ensure that your job can proceed without issues.

Related Services

We can help you to work on the escrow, title, permitting, and various legal letters that need to be generated as part of the planned build or development.

What Our Clients Say

A Godsend

Mr. Lopez was a Godsend and really helped me with my situation. Him and the entire firm were very diligent and helped speed the early stages of the process along due to a pressing situation. Throughout my experience working with the firm, they were always responsive and available any time I had a question or wanted to check on the state of affairs. Hopefully I won’t have to recommend Lopez Law Group to my friends or family, but if those unfortunate circumstances arise then there’s only one name I would trust. Thank you again for all your help!

Amazing Amazing Amazing!”

I called multiple attorneys to resolve my issue and none had much experience as much as this form. Anthony was amazing and made sure that as his client I was satisfied and understanding with his work. Very helpful and very patient and I was able to communicate with ease. I will definitely recommend this firm if you have a landlord/tenant issue or just an amazing attorney who listens to his clients needs.

Ashley Rondon


Thank you Geoff Pfeiffer, for your assistance when my HOA pushed back on my installation of the Solar Panels on my home. Your succinct and eloquent statements of my rights to them turned a “solar panels are not allowed on the front side of the roof, to a 100% approval with no changes needed. Thank you for helping me quickly resolved what was gearing up to be a fight with the HOA.

“I Will Never Use Another Lawyer”

We couldn’t be more satisfied with Sean’s work and are so grateful we chose him to represent us. He works so diligently and tenaciously to get results, and somehow manages to combine being a consummate professional yet friendly and approachable. I was honestly terrified of receiving the final bill considering the hours upon hours he invested in our case (texts, calls, emails, meetings, etc.) after hearing nightmare lawyer stories from other people, but when I did I was shocked at how little he charged us. I never thought I’d say I wanted to pay somebody more than they charged, yet this time I did. I will never use another lawyer; we will use Sean for any and all representation we will ever need, and I urge others to do the same. Thank you, Sean!
