Zoning Variances for Los Angeles Building Codes
Keeping track of Los Angeles building codes can be a difficult job for even the most detail-oriented contractor. However, figuring out when your project may be eligible for zoning variances can be even more difficult. Every contractor knows that zoning variances are when the city allows an exception to their usual zoning laws. Variances are usually approved when the property is used in a way that is mostly consistent with the code but has small differences.
The Burnham experience means that we can help you determine which variances are likely to get approved by the approval board. We streamline this process, often accompanied by hassles, to save you time and money. Our years of experience, combined with our close relationships with city officials, means that we have in-depth knowledge about zoning ordinances and building codes as well as changes to the codes and the laws. We understand what the city wants, what neighbors’ concerns may be, and how to submit requests that are likely to get approved. One of our main objectives is to get everything approved so that there are no hold-ups and so that no issues escalate into disputes or zoning conflicts.
While our Burnham team is guiding you through your zoning variance request, you can expect that we will study the relevant codes in each zone and thus predict where any potential problems may occur. Then we can work to circumnavigate those potential problems. We have experts that understand every aspect of getting a variance approved, from the impact the variance may have on traffic to its impact on the environment. Understanding the far-reaching effects of a variance is part of why we are so successful in getting variance requests approved.
Before you submit your request for zoning variances, you should speak with our consultants at Burnham. Our business connections mean that we understand the Los Angeles building codes, often have preemptive knowledge of changes, and know how to manipulate the approval process. We gladly offer our clients the benefits of our years of experience.
