Prior to purchasing a property, whether it be a ¼ acre residential lot, or a 100-acre industrial site, the prospective buyer often wants the property vetted to ensure they are not buying unforeseen problems with the property too. At the very least, the buyer wants to know what site problems do exist, so they can factor any deficiencies into negotiations of the sale.
Our office can complete feasibility studies ranging from simple “letter reports” evaluating the viability of a small residential building lot, to a full-blown study, complete with constraints mapping that identifies all issues associated with a site, such as 100-year floodplain, wetlands, steep slopes that prohibit building construction, unsuitable building soils, availability of public water and sewer, or ability to construct on-lot sewer and drill a well.
We review the zoning and/or subdivision and land development requirements of the municipality where the site is located against the existing conditions of the site. Bulk zoning regulations are reviewed to confirm adequacy of the lot for the use intended. Can a new driveway be permitted for the lot? Is there enough site distance in each direction along the road to allow the driveway to be installed? Can the intended use of the buyer be allowed in the existing zoning district?
Our feasibility studies give clients the facts they need to confidently decide whether or not to proceed with negotiating the purchase of property.
