Periodically, firm clients with special or unique circumstances seek to develop real property in a fashion that must deviate from traditional methods of platting and subdivision. These instances typically involve real estate which is outside governmental urban service areas and subject to extremely low density land use requirements. Real Property Group (“RPG”) attorneys are experienced advising clients seeking to take advantage of available alternate development opportunities. Examples include properties historically used for citrus production or other agricultural uses. Development opportunities may include the organization and development of 5 acre and 10 acre tract residential and equestrian projects, agricultural planned developments, the use of affidavits of exemption, and abbreviated platting procedures. RPG attorneys assist with all phases of theses activities, including representation before governmental and regulatory agencies, subdivision and development considerations, drafting of protective covenants, organization of community associations, and closing transactions with end users.
