LAND USE & ZONING

All cities, and especially New Orleans and the surrounding areas, have complex systems of regulation with respect to what types of residences and businesses are allowed in different areas and neighborhoods. These regulations are complicated and you may need an attorney to assist you in navigating them.

The attorneys at Sternberg, Naccari & White, LLC, including Natalie Mitchell, Joseph Marriott and Scott Sternberg, have experience with the local zoning regulations. In addition, the firm has represented Clients in front of the City Council, Jefferson Parish Council and the New Orleans City Planning Commission in complex and contentious matters relating to zoning and land use. Call us to discuss land use, conditional use, re-zoning or any other matter with respect to your Property.
 

RESULTS

  • Appeared before City Planning Commission to defend controversial conditional use.
  • Regularly represent local businesses and investors in application for zoning or conditional uses.

TAX SALES

Louisiana Parishes assess taxes against immovable property (land and homes) and expect the owner to pay those taxes. Sometimes, however, the property owner doesn’t get proper notice of their failure to pay assessed taxes and his or her Property is sold at a process called a tax sale. These sales are extremely common in Louisiana. If you don’t “redeem” the property within 3 years, you could lose your rights to own the property automatically!

If your Property has been sold at tax sale, the lawyers at Sternberg, Naccari & White can help with annulling the sale. If you are a tax title investor, the lawyers at SNW can assist with confirming your tax title via a quiet title action, monition proceeding, or other litigation. Call Sternberg, Naccari & White for your free tax sale consultation today!
 

RESULTS

  • Representation of tax title purchasers for quiet title actions.
