Real Estate

Every construction or development project proceeds under the specter of local land use regulations—some of which can be unnecessarily devastating to the livelihood of a new residential or commercial development project, as well as remodeling and/or expansion projects. Current Minnesota law eases previously harsh restrictions against variances, enhancing opportunities for builders and owners to achieve improved project outcomes.

Attorneys from Henson & Efron’s real estate practice work with clients and the local municipalities to pursue reasonable solutions to existing development challenges. Where appropriate and desired, we represent clients in a contested hearing before local planning commissions and city councils in an effort to secure a favorable contested outcome.
