Zoning / Land Use

Hamilton and Boone Counties are two of the fastest growing counties in the country. The rural agrarian landscape changes on a daily basis. When governmental bodies impose differing regulations regarding land use, building size, signage and the like, and it affects your property or property you are considering purchasing, it may become necessary to have someone with experience represent you and your interests to ensure that your plans are incorporated within the zoning ordinances of the governmental body. Should that occur, ALTMAN, POINDEXTER & WYATT LLC stands ready to help.

Eminent Domain

The inherent power of a governmental entity to take your privately owned property and convert it to public use is a provision not found in the United States Constitution, but one which is provided for under certain circumstances in the 5th Amendment. The governmental taking of private property must be for public use, which can be an issue for interpretation. With any such taking, the governmental entity must reasonably compensate the property owner. You should consider ALTMAN, POINDEXTER & WYATT LLC when you are navigating through this complex maze to ensure your compensation is reasonable and that the taking of the property is in fact appropriate under the law.

Land Use

When ordinances or other legislative enactments intended to govern the development of real estate through methods such as zoning and environment impact studies become a problem, ALTMAN, POINDEXTER & WYATT LLC stand ready to provide wise counsel or representation for your land use needs.

Landlord/Tenant Disputes

Oftentimes landlords find themselves dealing with a tenant that has failed to pay rent for several months, is hurting the value of the property, has abandoned or damaged the leased premises, or any combination thereof. Landlords find themselves asking what is the best and proper recourse they have against these tenants.

All of these types of situations necessitate sound and knowledgeable legal advice, which you can find at ALTMAN, POINDEXTER & WYATT LLC.
