Does a real estate permit pertain to conducting your business?

Whether you are an established business looking to expand into new markets or into other facets of the business, or a new business looking to get off the ground, permits can affect your day-to-day operations. Every business in Massachusetts is different, and some will be subject to more regulations than others. What regulations a business must comply with depends on the industry and scope of business activities. Whether you are renting a space or breaking ground on a new facility, every business has its own needs in terms of real estate permits.

It can be hard to understand all the possible permits that can apply to your specific industry. Even identical business operations, happening in two separate cities or states, can have entirely different regulations to comply with. That's why it's important to understand this before getting into a real estate contract or before purchasing land that doesn't work well in terms of regulation and your business' objectives.

Industries like manufacturing can be subject to real estate permits that are often more complicated than other industries. Before committing to leasing a space, or to buying land and building a commercial space, it is important to first make sure the necessary real estate permits can be obtained in your area. It's good not to put the cart before the horse, in this respect.

However, if your business has already committed to an area in which permits are a concern, there are ways to achieve a favorable outcome. It could take longer to resolve permit issues in a heavily regulated area than it may with a less regulated area. However, by understanding what permits are necessary and how to obtain them, businesses can move forward with their operations on the right foot.
