“Everything is negotiable. Whether or not the negotiation is easy is another thing.”
As is the case with most metropolitan cities, Oklahoma City has regulations that affect how certain allotments of land can be used, how certain buildings can be built, and what kinds of businesses can operate in certain areas. These rules are often complicated and nuanced. Negotiating a new zoning designation becomes more attainable with the help of a seasoned and proficient real estate zoning attorney.
The bottom line is the bottom line when it comes to zoning. The very purpose of zoning is to protect or increase property values. When two or more property owners want to use their individual parcels of land or their commercial buildings for conflicting uses, expensive legal disputes typically arise.
