Land Development

This town is booming…and we’re helping.

You have the plans ready for your new venture and you can even picture the ribbon cutting ceremony; but your enthusiasm starts fading when you think of all the legal loopholes you’ll have to jump through to secure the land and permits to make your dream a reality. Keep dreaming, because the attorneys at Davis, Agnor, Rapaport & Skalny, LLC will take care of the land details so you can focus on the rest.

The law of the land

We understand the complex zoning and land use regulations in Baltimore City and the surrounding counties.  We work closely with regional and local residential and commercial builders, developers, and investors in the development of a variety of often complex real estate projects. The earlier we become involved, the smoother the process is. The success of a development project begins with careful planning and a high level strategy.  Our attorneys guide you through all phases of the project, from due diligence and acquisition; to land use planning, development, subdivision, and permitting; to project completion and everything in between.

We prepare and negotiate many documents, including:

  • Agreements of Sale
  • Development Agreements
  • Cost Sharing Agreements
  • Contractor Agreements
  • AIA Documents
  • Rights of Way and Easements
