Zoning expert witnesses are often sought out for cases involving construction, property, or traffic-related issues, as zoning laws are used to authorize and restrict different types of land use. Zoning expert consulting may provide valuable information for litigation involving such disciplines as construction management, land development, landscape design, urban planning, real estate brokerage, general contracting, environmental science, architecture, real estate appraisal, real estate development, and various issues pertaining to commercial, civil, and residential development.
Zoning experts are often brought into cases resulting from contract disputes taking place within the construction and real estate industries, as zoning law would be a major factor in such contractual agreements. Zoning authorization and permits must be obtained before the commencement of a construction process, as failing to do so may violate the ownership rights of the surrounding property. Zoning litigation is also important to the efforts of environmental conservation and remediation, since it would prevent intrusive building projects in areas that would prove harmful to the natural environment.
Zoning expert witnesses may also be asked to provide an expert opinion regarding highway and road design as part of an urban planning project, since street design and other projects of traffic engineering must adhere to the existing zoning laws of an area.
