Relaxation Permits (Real Estate) by Kahane Law Office
What are relaxation permits. When you have real estate (land) and you have built something that does not comply with a municipality’s land use rules (such as side yard set backs or rear yard set backs), then you may need a relaxation permit. The relaxation permit relaxes the rule. Municipalities do not just hand these out. There is a cost to a relaxation permit. There is also a chance that the municipality will ask that the offending structure is removed or fixed.
