Philadelphia Zoning Law

Attorney Specializing in Philadelphia Zoning Law

Real estate developers, businesses, land planners, community groups, landlords, and residential homeowners often encounter zoning predicaments. As an old city, Philadelphia presents various challenges related to its zoning districts. Making sense of zoning maps and navigating Philadelphia’s zoning laws can be a daunting task that requires the help of an expert. In many cases, the entities involved in zoning disputes are unaware of how their properties are zoned or how to find information about Philadelphia zoning codes and the permit acquisition process.
