When it comes to homeownership, primarily land development, one keyword you’ll hear is land entitlement, but what does this mean?
By definition, land entitlements are the legal methods to be approved to develop land for a specific use. In layman’s terms, this is the extensive process you must go through in order to obtain the rights to build a home.
The process of entitlements can be complicated, expense, and quite time consuming (there is an extensive approval process) so before going into one it’s important to first start out by doing your due diligence.
Once you’ve completed your due diligence, the next step is the pre-entitlement process. If you’re new to the home building process, this entire process can be overwhelming, which is why having a qualified land entitlement service by your side is critical to make this experience a little less stressful and to help you avoid costly mistakes.
The next step step is the pre-approval process which includes, but is not limited to, zoning, obtaining permits and easements, development, and redevelopment of roads. Moving forward with building, be ready to discuss your project with your local Planning and Development Department to ensure you meet zoning codes and meet other requirements required for building.
