These are just a few of the issues that can and should be addressed in a building permit access contract. These agreements are important to both parties to ensure that they are “one page” in terms of the work and rights and obligations of each party. We therefore strongly recommend that anyone who has entered into a building permit contract present themselves with a lawyer.

Rivkin Radler also assists developers and landowners in negotiating access or licensing agreements that include protection for adjacent land during construction, demolition, excavation and construction. We advise your experts to review their plans for monitoring, scaffolding, support, weather protection, sidewalk protection, backyard protection and preparing a fair and reasonable access agreement to protect development rights and the interest of the adjacent owner. If necessary, we prepare a summary procedure and present it to require access and implementation of an appropriate licensing agreement.
