Overview

The issues of property rights and the environment may sometimes seem at odds with one another. Part of your job is to protect owners’ rights to use their properties as they wish. But what if, for example, a developer wants to build a project that could have a lasting negative environmental impact on the surrounding community? What’s the right balance between protecting property rights and community impact?

The real estate industry pays attention to changing environmental conditions. Practitioners benefit by being aware of changing environmental regulations affecting their area and the nation and how they may affect homeownership and commercial real estate.
