GIS International Facilitates The Process Of Obtaining Entitlements And Approvals Necessary To Build On Your Property

The GIS International team works hand in hand with the appropriate governing and regulatory bodies as we assist in getting the legal authorization to build on your site. We work to obtain land entitlements, which requires a series of steps in obtaining approvals for our plans to develop and build on your property. These entitlements are required by law, and without them, a building project may not go forward. The municipality that governs your selected site has specific requirements and zoning regulations that must be met in order to receive their approval and the legal authorization to build.

We Work With Governing Agents Until Your Land Is Fully Entitled, With All Necessary Approvals

The professionals at GIS have years of experience taking the necessary steps and completing the reports required for approvals. As we do so, we will work in order to obtain proper legal documents, making your property fully entitled. Legal authorization to build on your site means that we receive formal approval to build on the site according to the approved proposals. Municipalities dictate what can and what cannot be built within the various zones where they preside, and only they can grant the approvals for the enhancement of a particular parcel of land.

All Buildings Require Approval – The Building Process Must Align With The Proposed And Approved Plans

The approvals will include details such as the types of buildings that you intend to build (residential or commercial buildings) and the filings must include details regarding the planned sizes and scope of the buildings. It may also require specifications regarding planned access roads and parking.
